Current Observation

Fun Tropical Storm Fay surf out there today, with waves coming in around waist to chest high and an occasional bigger set few and far between. Winds right now out of the south at 12-15 knots, gusting up to 25kts.

Not a great day for southern facing coast, but definitely some fun surf if you can find shelter from that wind. Get on it!

Water Temperature is 70 degrees

We've got waves for days, scope our 3-day outlook below

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


SUNDAY, JULY 12

3-5 feet / SW winds

Fun chest high surf continues through Sunday with head high sets coming through at standout spots. Winds are looing favorable for east facing breaks, blowing southwest at 10-12 knots. More size expected at southern facing breaks but a little bit of texture on it. Low tide is around 7am.


MONDAY, JULY 13

3-4 feet / SSW

High pressure in the Atlantic interacts with a lingering trough of low pressure over the East Coast, setting up additonal southerly windswell for RI into Monday. Expect fun surf around waist to chest high or so, potentially a few bigger sets at standouts. Winds at the moment are light southwest. Another solid day of surf in New England!


TUESDAY, JULY 14

3-4 feet / SSW Winds

Fun surf continues for yet another day! Waves expected around waist to chest high or so, very similar size to Monday. Mellow winds out of the west/northwest all day. Another great day of surf in the Ocean State!


FURTHER OUT

Smaller leftovers continue through mid week, dropping thru the day on Wednesday but still some fun moments.

Further out is looking pretty mellow at the moment. Chance for an approcahing frontal system late next weekend that could set up a weak SW windswell, but other than that it's looking quiet. Be sure to get your fix over the next several days.... July is typically one of the slowest months of the year for surf...
