Cocoa Beach Surfing Weekend

Let's head over to Cocoa Beach for another awesome weekend of surfing!  Looks like right now conditions are lining up for a nice sesh Saturday morning with offshore winds and 2-3 foot.

We will meet Saturday morning at the Pier. Parking is $15 now. So download the MobileNow app before you get there and park at the meters. We will start there and move further south later in the day to 2nd Light or Tables.

I will spend time with anyone new for an hour or so early Sat morning, but this weekend is mainly about surfing, not so much teaching. If you are brand new and want instruction, plan to come to one of our learn to surf days, where we spend the entire first part of the day in the water dedicated to teaching.

I (Carol Ann) will be there about 8:00am Saturday. Look for my light blue Torq 8.0 or my solid green 6.8 fish. We usually surf the second break to the right, but sometimes we are on the left side of the pier depending on winds. 

For cheap lodging - I recommend Econolodge (formerly Luna Sea Motel) - right on the main strip close to Ron Jons. They have very reasonable rates and the rooms are older but clean. 3185 N Atlantic Ave Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. Phone: (321) 783-0500.

Call to make your reservations at least 1 week ahead - and tell them you are Carol Ann's surfer friend - they will give you a good rate.

For board rentals and lessons, I recommend Bilt Surf Shop. They open at 9am. Ron Jons rentals open at 8am and also is good for cheap foamie board rentals. Bilt is a couple miles south of Ron Jons at 210 N Orlando Ave Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. Phone number (321) 868-8820. 

Let's keep our fingers crossed for great conditions. Look forward to seeing alot of you guys out there!!

    Awesome couple sessions today! Early morning at the pier, and then a really nice sesh at 20th street with Jack and Maria and Andrea. Conditions were 2-3 foot and glassy today too. Maybe even better today...What an awesome day and overall fun weekend full of waves, good times, and good friends! Thanks everyone! See you again soon! I'll work on getting some rash guards that say Surfers of Central Florida, maybe for everyone..

    Thanks to Mike Bock and Jack for the super full moon surf at the pier last night. Between the sunset in one direction and the moon rising in the other, and the dark glassy waves, it was one of the best surf sessions I've had since I started surfing. Just beautiful, awesome, and fun!!!! Thanks guys..

    I'm sorry we missed those of you that came out!!! The best thing to do is to come early in the morning. Its easier to find us in the water. If you come later, then next best is to get in the water and look for me. I'm thinking I will invest in a neon rash guard for this purpose next time.

    • Brandon

      I'm at 2nd light, getting ready to leave, got here at 2 so I guess I missed everyone :-(. But next time. As for dinner, I would but I didn't bring any clothes!!! However, I'm coming over for Labor Day weekend and staying Friday/Saturday - surfing Saturday Sunday... Catch y'all next time :-)

    Hey Rachel!! I'm so glad you can make it out! Yes, definitely will be great to meet you! There is a core group of us surfer girls that normally surf together. Not sure if any of them are coming this weekend or not but you will meet them all eventually... We have an awesome time when we all surf together. Look forward to surfing with you and your guy friend! What's his name?

    This is for Brandon, I think 2nd Light is directly across from the Patrick AFB main gate. There is also a "2nd Light" sign near the center of the parking lot if my recollection is accurate.
    Question: Is near the pier better at high tide?
    From experience, 2nd Light seems better at low tide.

    1 · August 8

    • Brandon

      Cool, those are the parking lots and beaches I'm used to, I'll find you all. I'll be driving an orange honda element with yakima rack, tail light guards, brush guards, side steps, and black steelies for anyone else trying to find the spot

      August 8

  • Carol A.

    For anyone planning to meetup with us a bit later... We will be at the Pier till about 12-1pm. After that, we'll pick a place for lunch and then if conditions are good probably head to 2nd light. Text if you are not planning to come for the early morning sesh.

    August 8

    • Brandon

      Sounds good, I'll probably head straight to 2nd light around noon. Funny thing, I've been surfing tables and 2nd light for years, but didn't know the names lol! Although, I do need clarification: is 2nd light where the officer's club used to be or is it the next parking lot south?

      August 8

    • Carol A.

      Brandon, they actually have signs now labeling the lots. 2nd light is right across from the main gate of pafb

    Looking good for tomorrow morning at the Pier! It will be high tide so that's the best spot for tomorrow. I'll be there by 8am. Look for me either on the left side of the pier or the 2nd break. I'll have my green 6.8 fish or my light blue torq.

    1 · August 8

    • Brandon

      I'll probably be there around noonish. Black/yellow rash guard and yellow 6'8 Ron Jon board. I'll post when I hit the road

      1 · August 8

    • Carol A.

      OK Brandon, by that time we will probably be getting ready to move to a new location further South. We may also be at lunch! So be sure to text before paying for parking at the Pier.

      Dawn, sorry you can't make it! What's your hubbie's name and what does he ride so I can look for him?

      August 6

  • Bruce

    Related but unrelated: There's another cam available at Sunset sponsored by Lenny's Surf Shop. If past experience is an indicator, when both cameras are inop then there must be waves!

    1 · August 4

  • Brandon
