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 temperatures will average 69 degrees this weekend. A springsuit or vest in the morning may be all that will be needed with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies providing some added warmth.

SURF REPORT FOR DEC. 27 – 28

SATURDAY: Surf this Saturday morning is running in the knee- to thigh-high range with semi-clean lines early from a northeasterly breeze ideal for longboarding.

Mid-morning’s incoming tide may provide the best longboarding waves. Later in the afternoon we may see much bigger surf as the leading fetch from an approaching northeast groundswell reaches our surf zones.

SUNDAY: Surf heights will run in the chest- to head-high range. I expect fun conditions with a slight ocean bump from a gentle onshore breeze.

Those seeking an early “Dawn Patrol” session may enjoy cleaner lines from a brief northwesterly breeze.

Ocean temperatures will average 69 degrees this weekend. A springsuit or vest in the morning may be all that will be needed with sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies providing some added warmth.
