SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Reporter: Nick H

Updated: 12, April, 2021 @ 08:04

Current Observation

Small surf to start the morning, looking knee to thigh high at top spots. Southerly swell fills in over the course of the day - could see sets around waist high or so this afternoon. At least enough to get a couple on the logs!

North/northeast winds all day around 10-12 knots - so east facers are looking a bit bumpy, clean at southern facing breaks


Best bet over next few days: Friday

Water Temperature: 44 Degrees

Wetsuit needed: Hooded 5/4 + 5mm Boots + 5mm gloves

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


TUESDAY, APRIL 13

1-2 feet / N Winds

Minor southerly swell lingers into Tuesday with waves up to knee high at best. Northerly winds all day


WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14

0-1 feet / Light winds

Residual swell/windswell mix in the water barely topping knee high once again. Light variable winds


THURSDAY, APRIL 15

1-3 feet PM / Easterly winds

Very small surf to start off Thursday. Low pressure shifts off the coast of Virginia Thursday AM and strengthens a bit. This sets up an easterly windswell for RI developing late in the day. Expect messy waves around knee to waist high or so before dark. Straight east winds all day


FURTHER OUT

This storm system looks like it will push right up onto our door step by Friday morning. Unfortunately a little too close for the swell to organize and winds to improve.

Looks like we should see some size on Friday paired with onshore SE winds.

Could be a window of fun surf if you know of a spot that won't be affected by the wind

Swell drops out almost entirely by Saturday morning, and the rest of the weekend will be around ankle high at best.

Certain models are hinting at some action into the front half of next week.

Stay tuned!
