The east coast of Florida includes numerous surfing beaches, with the northeast coast providing the most consistent conditions. The largest waves usually occur during hurricane season from August to October, while the most consistent swell season takes place during the winter and early spring.
On the northeast coast, Jacksonville holds regular surfing competitions. Popular east coast surfing destinations include Cocoa beach and Sebastian inlet. Cocoa beach is the home beach of numerous professional surfers. Unlike the north and central east coast, which often require wearing wetsuit while surfing, the southeast coast boasts warm water conditions all year. Numerous surfing beaches exist near the southeast coast cities of Palm Beach and Boca Raton.
