Why are West Winds offshore for RI South facing breaks?
I have recently noticed that west (20+ knots) winds now show up as offshore for Rhode Island south facing breaks. W winds blow offshore for E facing RI breaks but not Southerly facing ones. RI is just as south facing (if not more so) as long island and west winds show as choppy or semi clean for long island. In fact ive surfed breaks in RI with NE winds with clean offshore conditions. Was wondering if this is some sort of glitch or maybe ive just been missing out all these years :p Thanks!
