SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Current Observation

Still some really fun surf out there today in the chest to head high zone. Sets coming in slightly overhead at standouts. Winds out of the southwest around 15-20 knots, so south facers are pretty much out of the question. Surf drops a touch over the course of the day, but still plenty of waves. Get on it if you can

Water Temperature is 56 degrees = Hooded 4/3 Wetsuit + 3-5mm booties + 3mm gloves

SURF OUTLOOK

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3

2-3 feet / West winds

Southerly windswell fades into Thursday morning, but still offering up a couple of longboard waves early. Surf in the knee to waist high range for much of the day with winds out of the west. Definitely worth taking a look if you've got some time.


FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4

1-2 feet / SSW Winds

Small scale SE swell fills in stemming from the central Atlantic. This should keep the surf around knee to thigh high or so, nothing major but enough for a few fun ones on the log. Winds continue out of the SW around 10-12 knots.


SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5

1-3 feet / Light variable winds

Minor ESE swell continues over the course of the day mixed with a weak SW windswell. Should see some knee to thigh high surf in the water, with top southern facing breaks pulling in a touch more size. Another day for the logs! Light variable winds


FURTHER OUT

It's looking more and more likely that we see another winter storm develop along the coast Saturday into Sunday.

Models are still a bit split on the strength and positioning of the storm, so wave heights are a crap shoot at the moment. But I'd bank on something to surf Sunday and maybe into Monday.

Further out we might see another (weak) system develop in the SW Atlantic, but models aren't quite lining up on this one just yet. Worth keeping an eye on!

Not a bad start to December!
