Yeah, I agree hinmo... I told my wife I was going to the beach just to do some paddle training for 1 hour because the forecast wasn't too good to be actually surfing. It turns out it was a blast at second beach, very crowded, but consistent shoulder to head high waves on every part of the beach. I saw the airplane too and it was pretty cool. I surfed for three and a half hours.
RI was fun this evening
By no means am I complaining here; the forecast was showing 3' @ 7 seconds for Newport, and I went over with a few buddies around 6pm - 830 and there was consistent shoulder to head high sets rolling through. I was one of the farthest out at one point and had to duck dive under an overhead wave -I was pissed I couldn't get out to turn on - it looked to clean out a handful of folks behind me after it passed. Pretty fun session and a lot of surfers were out there, was anyone on here surfing second beach to confirm the decency of the waves? Also, with the sun setting what looked like a ww2 style plane made a few sick turns at what looked to be about 200' above the lineups which was bad ass.
