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 OCTOBER 16-19

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

FRIDAY: The surf this Friday morning is looking small and weak. Early northeasterly winds are producing bumpy conditions on waves averaging only knee- to thigh-high.

SATURDAY: Saturday’s surf will increase some into the mostly thigh-high range. But, steady northeasterly winds will produce very bumpy and sloppy conditions.

 

SUNDAY: I expect surf heights to gradually build through the day. Winds will increase and a new northeasterly groundswell will move closer to our surf zones. Wave heights could approach chest-high by late afternoon.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 77 degrees.
