    I bailed because it was closing out and the board flipped and I landed sitting down on the fin.

    Lol funny **** is... easternlines in belmar on this site has the waves at 2-4ft fun paddle out. WTF 2-4 ft do they see? I am seeing 1-2ft all morning/day now with 15-20 ppl out lol its a joke. Summer time really brings out the kooks here. I guess its good though. Let them have the small surf and when the big boy stuff comes around no one is to be found.

    Staying in bed was a good idea. I surfed for 4 hours and scored 4 waves that I considered worth the effort. All the rest were waist high slop and hard to surf slop at that.

One spot will be flat while one just down the street is chest high, keep your eye on it and start driving, and check different tides.

    Even better idea, dont look at the forecast, just go check it yourself.
    My god...get off the rag. How am I making rhode island look bad?????????????? Go to Utah! lol I'm the one staying put

    in similar news, solid waist sets coming in with 1-2 chests every 20 minutes or so. real easy waves and some nice long rides on the ones that set up better. a fantastic birthday present from mother nature
    Happy Birthday, homecheese!

    Their both south facing breaks and 3 miles apart. Really quite strange.

    Yes, I just said that... Regardless, there is a million opportunities along the RI coast line to find where the swell is hitting. Take the RI forecast with a grain of salt, know the bouys, know the tides, keep an eye on the wind and give yourself a solid hour to take a drive.

    The surf report I do everyday is simply just what the forecast and buoys are saying with some pictures, usually I find waves somewhere.... but in between I find tons of spots that are flat.

    You're lucky it didn't go through your box.
