Had a good 4 -hour session this morning, had lunch and watched the Patriots beat Tennessee. The sets were solid shoulder to head high and lining up with offshore winds.
Rhode Island has some fun point breaks that are taking the swells from Leslie with no problem.
The beaches are hit or miss, but have been ridable.
I know this will piss some people off, but Ruggles Ave. in Newport can handle almost any swell that hits it from Hurricanes because it is a true point break. There are plenty more in Rhode Island and the Islands.
Pros like Ian Walsh and Garrett McNamara have made the trip here when it gets big. No bull****.
I say to our brothers from New Jersey to Florida to make a trip up here next Hurricane swell and check it out.
