BOB FREEMAN’S WEEKEND SURF REPORT FOR APRIL 16-17
By Space Coast Daily // April 16, 2016
SURF REPORT FOR APRIL 16-17
SATURDAY: Overhead groundswell started showing during the pre-dawn hours. Strong winds from the northeast will produce very bumpy and drifty surface conditions.
SUNDAY: I expect wave heights to run in the overhead- to well overhead range. Strong northeasterly winds will again produce very rough conditions.
Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 75 degrees.
