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 79 degrees.

SURF REPORT FOR SEPTEMBER 9-11

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.

Good Morning, Surfers!

This weekend’s early morning hours during the incoming tide will prove to be the best surfing times this weekend. A light onshore breeze will add a bit of bump to the wave face.

FRIDAY: Waves will be running in the thigh-high range with bumpy conditions from a light easterly wind. South Brevard beach breaks may not be rideable by late-morning as the incoming tide fills in.

SATURDAY: A new easterly groundswell will boost wave heights up into the waist-high range. Expect bigger sets during mid-morning’s high tide push. Gentle onshore winds will add soft bumps to the long lines.

SUNDAY: I expect the wave heights to reduce some into the thigh- to waist-high range with semi-bumpy conditions again.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 82 degrees.
