SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Updated: 25, January, 2020 @ 09:56

Current Observation

Blown out and messy surf out there today, waves coming in around waist to stomach high with strong winds out of the east, gusting up to 30 knots this afternoon. Swell building over the course of the day. 

Could be some little waves to surf if you can find shelter from that wind. 

Water Temperature is 44°F and dropping (Hooded 5/4 wetsuit, 5mm booties, 5mm gloves)

SURF OUTLOOK

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


SUNDAY, JANUARY 26

3-4 feet / West/southwest winds 8 knots

Winds switch overnight, blowing out of the west by Sunday morning with playful surf in the waist to chest high range, standouts seeing a bit more size. Plenty of surf on tap so plan accordingly! High tide in the morning at 8:30 or so.


MONDAY, JANUARY 27

2-3 feet / West winds

Smaller leftovers into Monday but still some fun waist high surf coming thru, maybe a touch bigger at standouts. Winds out of the west all day. Best bet is to grab your log and cruise to an east facing spot early before the swell fades further.


TUESDAY, JANUARY 28

1-2 feet / NW winds 10 knots

Minor ESE and SW windswell mix in the water, topping out at knee high at best. Maybe enough for the logs, but nothing epic. Winds out of the NW all day.


FURTHER OUT

Flat conditions continue for the rest of the week.

Models are still hinting at an increase in activity going into early February, but specifics are still jumbled. The euro is showing a better situation for swell development, so fingers crossed on that!
