SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Reporter: Nick H

Updated: 16, April, 2021 @ 09:37

Current Observation

Fun waist to stomach high with a few chest high sets, dropping throughout the day. Weak swell period (around 7-8s), so not a whole lotta push. Still plenty of fun for the grovelers and logs. Not much happening in the water for the next few days, so take advantage of this little window of surf.

Winds out of the NW this morning at 15 knots, shifting west into the afternoon.


Best bet over next few days: Today!

Water Temperature: 44 Degrees

Wetsuit needed: Hooded 5/4 + 5mm Boots + 5mm gloves

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


SATURDAY, APRIL 17

1-2 feet / NNW Winds

SE windswell fades almost completely into Saturday morning. Knee high surf expected for top spots (if we're lucky), dropping into the flat range by the afternoon. Northwest winds blowing 10-15 knots in the morning, lightening up into the afternoon.


SUNDAY, APRIL 18

0-1 feet / Light NW winds

Flat to knee high surf on tap for Sunday with very light winds expected. Mayyyybe enough of a wave to catch a few on the 9'6"+, but generally flat.


MONDAY, APRIL 19

0-1 feet / Light west winds

Lake like conditions to start the week across Rhody. Micro waves up along the Cape if your desperate. Super light winds


FURTHER OUT

Early next week is looking pretty darn flat, shocker.

Keeping an eye on the middle of the week for a potential frontal windswell - though it's looking pretty weak overall.

Further out isn't looking so hot either - but models are just starting to hint at a new system sometime around the 25-26th. Way way out, but worth keeping an eye on

Big ol' batch of WRV surfboards just hit the board room! Got some Captains Logs, Janes, Classic Noseriders, and Nuggets. Swing by and scope the beautiful resin work and shapes
