Cocoa Surf Guide

Cocoa on the North Coast is an exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the south southeast with some shelter here from northeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the north. A left hand reef break. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Take care of urchins, rips and rocks.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
