Waves are looking mostly unrideable this morning. Late-morning's lower tide could help make the small waves more rideable by then. Surfers seeking an early morning surf session may want to focus on Cocoa Beach's northernmost beaches for a longboardable wave.

Ocean water temperatures are in the 80 degree range. Don’t forget to wear a rashguard and apply sunscreen.
