By Bob Freeman // February 27, 2015
SURF REPORT FOR FEB. 27- MARCH 1
FRIDAY: Expect mostly small scale waves with very bumpy and drifty conditions this Friday morning.
Last night’s northerly winds will continue today and produce waves in the thigh-high range.
Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach surf spots may provide the cleanest lines. Watch for wave heights to increase into the waist-high range by mid afternoon.
SATURDAY: Saturday’s surf will build into the waist- to chest-high range with very bumpy conditions continuing from a strong northeasterly wind.
SUNDAY: A northerly groundswell will building underneath the existing windswell will add more power to the waves and increase their heights into the overhead range.
Unfortunately, very strong northeasterly winds will produce very bumpy and drifty conditions. again.
Capable shortboarders may find some challenging lumps and bumps to bounce on.
Beginners should exercise caution and perhaps wait for wind and surf to subside.
Ocean temperatures now average 63 degrees. A fullsuit for early morning surfers may provide the best option.
