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.

Sunday’s surf will remain in the thigh- to waist-high range with bumpy conditions again from a steady southeasterly wind.

SURF REPORT FOR APRIL 17-19

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

FRIDAY: Surf heights are in the thigh to waist-high range this morning with bumpy conditions from a steady southeasterly wind.

Wave heights should increase to waist-high with plus size sets by mid-morning during the high tide push.

SATURDAY: Saturday’s surf will decrease some into the thigh- to waist-high range. 

Brief early morning offshore winds will clean up the lines followed by a gentle onshore breeze in the afternoon.

SUNDAY: Sunday’s surf will remain in the thigh- to waist-high range with bumpy conditions again from a steady southeasterly wind.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 75 degrees.

A vest or springsuit for early morning surfers may provide the best option this weekend.
