    The difference between RI and NJ is close. It's not like west coast vs east coast where there is no comparison. Yes Jersey is exposed, but so is RI. It's exposed to sw swell that jersey can't pick up. RI can't pick up northeast swell. RI can handle multiple wind directions as far as offshore winds are concerned and can handle ground swell better so RI is the winner.

    OBX is most exposed on the ec

    LMAO...I give up
    I think you must be getting trolled....

    Maybe this helps:

    Here is a swell map from January (remember that long flat spell in january?)

    This is a SW swell. You can see that it is filling in quite nicely up in Rhode Island, and might think that NJ is getting waves from this swell, but it is not. The swell is moving away from land and you usually don't ride waves that are going out to sea. I know it's not the best site around, but MSW also has historical data so you can get an idea of what the corresponding surf height was supposed to be for this swell:

    Rhode Island
    4-6 ft

    New Jersey
    1 ft

    OK this is the last time........in very simple terms.

    The surf is flat in NJ. A low pressure system is coming across the country. It picks up gulf moisture and intensifies as it heads to the coast.

    The storm arrives. The winds start blowing 15-25 mph out of the NE. There will be waves in a matter of hours.

    Now you will say these aren't "waves" but "chop." No, these are waves from the same storm that you later call "swell" once it pushes 175 miles of the coast

    OK, the storm pushes off the coast and the winds switch NW. The waves clean up.

    In most cases when the storm gets "175 miles" off the coast.......it's getting smaller and relatively soon will be flat on the east coast........or small BS.

    Dude, the winds associated with storms create surf. Those dudes surfing New Zealand swells at Lowers are surfing "chop." It's groomed "chop."

    Does RI get E swells and N, and NE swells? I don't think so. Hurricane season is RI's time for dormant breaks to come alive. I also thought there were some large land masses to your south and south west.

    Trolled??

    Dude, you are using MSW as the basis for your argument. Need I say more? You are showing a map. That proves nothing. And lets say that that one particular day, Rhode Island had waves and Jersey didn't, does that prove that RI is more consistent?

    Again, it is very simple let's compare the daily surf from RI and NJ for the next month. Or is that unfair because this isn't a good time of year for SW swells?

    I ain't mad at all. Can't speak for anybody else.

    Legendary surf video dude Kevin Welsh said........."Florida has the oranges but Jersey's got the juice." And Rhode Island can't even compare to Florida in consistency.

    And I don't have any Rhode Island prejudices.

    I'm not trying to prove which is more consistent. I have no dog in this fight. Just saying NJ doesn't get SW swells and RI does. That's all.
