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.

Friday: Surfers will find very small waves this morning with clean conditions from a light offshore breeze. Saturday: A strong cold front will move through our area on Saturday. Surf will be mostly unrideable early, but will build during the afternoon. Sunday: The cold front will drop air and water temperatures to the lowest so far this season. Waves will build into the chest- to head-high range with very bumpy and drifty conditions from a strong northeasterly wind.
