Small fun surf on tap for Memorial Day weekend

This Memorial Day weekend the surf in Brevard County should get up to waist high with a few bigger sets. Was surfing it yesterday from 8-10 a.m. with offshores and knee high surf at high tide. I'll be up here til the 31st, so if you want to come up for a sesh, drop me a line. Also, today is REEF APPRECIATION DAY at Balsa Bill's Surf Shop in south Satellite Beach (12-4 p.m.). Live music, prizes, and a afternoon low tide displaying the beauty of Brevard's unique coastal ecosystem that needs to be protected. There's also plans to re-dredge the north and south beaches of Brevard this fall, messing up the sand bars for another 6 years, but I'll save that for another post.
