    rhode island surf

    I'm gonna be up in RI for turkey day and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a beach to surf at. I'm staying about 10 mins outside of providence but RI is small so im not worried about a long drive. Also wondering how the beaches faired after Sandy. If anyone could help that would be great.

    Yeah man first or second beach should have some waves. Eastons. My sister goes to school on the cliffs and I know they closed school for sandy but don't think it was devastating relative to southern areas.

    I've always wanted to go up there to Narragansett. there has been pics in the mags in the past that look big and clean.

    Do really need to be spot naming/spot advertising? And that's wrong anyway. It's closeouts most of the time. It's only good once in a while, which is why it's not a crowded zoo like the more popular breaks. Not exactly a smart idea to bank on driving all the way from Providence when it's so hit and miss.

    Also, that area close to atlantic ave got devastated by the hurricane and I know the entire area had no access for a long time because of all the carnage. Not sure if access has returned. Atlantic ave was under 6 feet of sand

    I really wish people would stop spot naming. Breaks are crowded enough. Only reason to ever name a spot is for a daily surf report. That's it.

    Why worry about the beaches when there are plenty of nice rock reef breaks? Plenty of places to surf around Narragansett and Newport that don't have a sand bottom. The biggest factor in surfing Rhodie is the swell direction.
