BOB FREEMAN’S WEEKEND SURF REPORT
By Bob Freeman // April 9, 2016
SURF REPORT FOR APRIL 9-10
SATURDAY: Surf heights are holding in the waist-high range with plus size sets from South Cocoa Beach down through Melbourne Beach.
Increasing winds now shifting from the NW to the North are creating very bumpy and drifty surface conditions.
Water is warm but early northwesterly winds felt winter-like during my Dawn Patrol surf session this morning up in the Cocoa Beach area.
SUNDAY: Surf heights will build during the afternoon into the chest-high range with bumpy conditions from a steady onshore wind.
Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 75 degrees.
