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.

Saturday’s groundswells from Hurricane Joaquin will produce much bigger surf in the overhead range.

SURF REPORT FOR OCT 2-4

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

FRIDAY: Fun surf continues this Friday morning. Waves are running in the chest-high range with semi-clean conditions early from a steady northwesterly wind. The bigger waves are occuring south of the Patrick Air Force Base with the better reefs producing excellent quality.

Expect slightly smaller surf, but with cleaner conditions in the Cocoa Beach area.

SATURDAY: Saturday’s groundswells from Hurricane Joaquin will produce much bigger surf in the overhead range. Surfers should beware of powerful breaking waves and stronge rip currents. In addition, a Low pressure system moving off our coast will produce stronger northwesterly winds.

SUNDAY: I believe surf heights will decrease back into the head-high range for Sunday. Steady offshore winds from the southwest will produce semi-clean surface conditions.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 80 degrees.
