Today

The surf will run in the thigh- to waist-high range with clean lines from a light offshore breeze. Late morning’s lower tide and occasional bigger sets from a distant swell source could provide some fun rides for shortboarders and longboarders.

Saturday

Surf heights may build to mostly waist high, but steady onshore winds will create bumpy conditions. I expect light onshore breezes early, then becoming windy later in the day.

Sunday

Surf heights should remain in the thigh- to waist-high range with strong winds from the south producing very bumpy conditions. There is a chance those winds may become more southwesterly, which would improve the surfing conditions for Brevard’s southernmost surf spots.
