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.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 75 degrees.

SURF REPORT FOR APRIL 1-3

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

Bob Freeman has been surfing Brevard’s waves since 1966.Waves are not looking very fun this morning. There is plenty of northeasterly groundswell remaining, but onshore winds from passing storms are producing sloppy conditions.

FRIDAY: Surfers this morning will find mostly waist-high waves with bumpy conditions early from a steady southerly wind. Watch for possible short periods of southwesterly winds which could improve conditions along Brevard’s southernmost beaches.

SATURDAY: Surf heights will hold in the mostly waist-high range with cleaner conditions expected from an early southwesterly wind becoming more westerly during the day.

SUNDAY: I believe the passing cold front will keep waves in the waist-high range, but with bumpy, drifty conditions from an expected strong northerly wind.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 75 degrees.
