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: Waves this Saturday morning are running in the waist- to chest-high range with slightly bumpy conditions early from a light onshore wind. Waves will be fun for shortboarders and longboarders to ride at all locations during this morning’s high tide push. Sunday: I expect waves to remain in the waist- to chest-high range. But steady southerly winds from an advancing cold front will produce drifty conditions. Surfers should still take advantage of the sunny day and warm ocean temperature. Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 72 degrees.
