SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Reporter: Nick H

Updated: 27, January, 2020 @ 10:26

Current Observation

Still a little leftover wave coming in this morning around knee to thigh high. Could be fun on the logs if you head to the right spot. Winds out of the west all day, so south facers are a bit crossed up. 

Surf should get a touch more consitent once that tide drops out... so worth keeping an eye on an early afternoon session.


Water Temperature is 43°F and dropping (Hooded 5/4 wetsuit, 5mm booties, 5mm gloves)

SURF OUTLOOK

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


TUESDAY, JANUARY 28

1-2 feet / West/northwest winds 10 knots

Minor ESE swell and SW windswell mix in the water, topping out at knee high at best. Winds out of the NW.


WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 29

0-1 feet / North winds

Minor surf with flat conditions likely for RI. Winds out of the north.


THURSDAY, JANUARY 30

0-0 feet / NE winds

Another flat day in RI with minor traces in the water, barely ankle high.


FURTHER OUT

Flat conditions continue into the end of the week.

We should see some increased activity later this upcoming weekend, as low pressure moseys over from the midwest. Looking like the system may shift offshore, but the positioning will depend on what type of surf we can expect. Too soon to make the call, so keep an eye on this space for updates.
