SURF REPORT SUMMARY

Reporter: Nick H

Updated: 26, January, 2020 @ 10:06

Current Observation

Fun little SE swell in the water with surf right around stomach high with occasional sets around chest high. Winds out of the west all day, so southern spots have a bit of texture. Surf will drop a touch over the day, but still be fun on the right equipment all day. Get on it

Water Temperature is 44°F and dropping (Hooded 5/4 wetsuit, 5mm booties, 5mm gloves)

SURF OUTLOOK

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


 

MONDAY, JANUARY 27

2-3 feet / West winds

Smaller leftovers into Monday but still some fun waist high surf coming thru, maybe a touch bigger at standouts. Winds out of the west all day. Best bet is to grab your log and cruise to an east facing spot early before the swell fades further.


TUESDAY, JANUARY 28

1-2 feet / NW winds 10 knots

Minor ESE and SW windswell mix in the water, topping out at knee high at best. Maybe enough for the logs, but nothing epic. Winds out of the NW all day.


FURTHER OUT

Flat conditions continue for the rest of the week.

Models are still hinting at an increase in activity going into early February, but specifics are still jumbled. The euro is showing a better situation for swell development, so fingers crossed on that!
