RI Surf Report + Outlook

Today’s Overview

Saturday, November 17

Wave Height: 2′

Wind Speed + Direction: W around 10 knots

Compared to Yesterday: Smaller

Tides: Low @ 8:18 am High @ 3:01 pm

Description:

Surf dropped a bit overnight but is still ride-able early at top spots. Look for surf in the knee to waist high range this morning with occ. sets up to stomach high. Swell is tapering off over the course of the day – so best bet is to time your session with the incoming tide early afternoon with bigger board. West winds keeping conditions smooth along E facing breaks, not so smooth along the south coast.

Outlook

Minor S/SE on Sunday into Monday – could be okay on a long board at the better tides.

FURTHER OUT

The rest of next week looks small – with minor traces of SE windswell. Unfortunately the much anticipated turkey day swell is not going to happen this year after about 3 years in a row. 🙁 There’s some activity that could develop in the SE towards the end of the month and shoot some surf up our way, but things are not looking too promising. Keep an eye on this page and we’ll bring you the updates!

COMING SOON – BLACK FRIDAY DEALS!! STAY TUNED, EVERYTHING IN STORE ON SALE. DETAILS RELEASED MONDAY!

 

FYI..

NOAA just released the 2018-2019 Winter Weather Outlook – favoring a warmer than normal winter for New England due to an expected weak El Nino phase. Click here for the full report.

Fortunately for us, should an El Nino develop, we would see an up tick in surf thru the winter as El Nino typically leads to storminess (and swells) originating out of the Southeast US due to enhanced southern branch of the jetstream that is typical of an El Nino phase. It’s too early to know for sure if El Nino will develop, but the signs are there.
