SURF REPORT FOR OCT 10-12

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 remain in the lower 80s. Don’t forget to wear a rashguard and apply sunscreen.

SURF REPORT FOR OCT. 10-12, 2014

Bob Freeman has been surfing Brevard's waves since 1966.

FRIDAY: Waves early this morning are running in the knee- to thigh-high range with bumpy lines from a steady northeasterly wind.

This morning’s higher tide will prevent waves from breaking at many popular surf spots south of Cocoa Beach.

SATURDAY: Saturday’s surf will increase into the thigh-to waist-high range with cleaner conditions from a lighter northeast breeze.

SUNDAY: Sunday’s arrival of an Eastery groundswell will push wave heights up into the waist- to chest-high range along all of Brevard’s beaches. I believe we will have an on shore summer-like wind which will provide some fun lumps and bumps for shortboarders.

Ocean water temperatures are now in the upper 70s. Don’t forget to wear a rashguard and apply sunscreen.
