Fun surf out there this morning looking waist to chest high with west/northwest winds expected for the day. Swell drops a bit further over the course of that, so best bet is early with the incoming tide push

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26

2-3 feet / West winds

Southeast windswell picks up again into Sunday thanks to weak tropical depression Teresa, looking like it should be fun waist to stomach high surf in the morning. Possibly a touch bigger early at top spots. Winds are looking west all day.


MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 27

1-3 feet AM / West Winds

SE windswell lingers into Monday around knee to thigh high, slowly dropping out into the afternoon. Another day for the logs + winds continue out of the west


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28

1-2 feet / WSW winds

Leftover SE swell mixes with a developing SW windswell, waves top out in the knee to thigh high zone. Could be just enough for the longer boards at top exposures. Southwest winds


FURTHER OUT

All eyes on Hurricane Sam!

The storm is currently moving west across the ATL. Models show the system continuing to strengthen as it pushes west, becoming a major Hurricane as it gets closer to the Caribbean.

Model guidance has the hurricane moving north of the Islands as it continues to push west and eventually curve NE.

Still a ways out to know where the storm will end up and how quick it will move as it enters our swell window

Feeling pretty confident at this point that we will see some fun swell from Sam start to filter in towards next weekend. Stay tuned!
