    * It seems like there is usually (especially for S / SE swells) a big drop in wave height between the Block Island buoy (44097) and 1st/2nd beach -- i.e. buoy reading of 4ft 7second = 2ft waves hitting Newport

    * Also seems like there is some delay (Maybe an hour?) from when the buoy reports a swell to when it hits the beach, although that's hard to tell since the buoy only updates once an hour.

    * The first beach cams are a very iffy thing -- only updates every 20 minutes and the last update may have been a brief flat spell, they're only really good for telling if it is huge or not / seeing if there are like 100 people surfing at 1st beach... although on a 6-8ft day with the angle of the cam you might only be able to see the whitewash/people paddling out

    * Checking the Gansett cam can help a lot too

    * Usually if the Block Island buoy is less than 6 feet, it isn't worth driving to Rhode Island IMO
    Dude, I live 2 1/2 hours away from RI which is my closest place where real waves break and I go there every damn weekend. Wait, how far are you away?

    Dude - call Sid @ Water Bros. 401-848-9283 or 401-849-9283.

    He is at the beach @ 6 a.m. every morning and will make an update if things change. Unless he is surfing himself.

    How bout an si meet/greet/surf rhodeys hospitable beaches?
    we could camp at burlingame state forest - no hook-ups but only $20 p/night.
    (blank surf spot) only 10 mins away and if conditions warrant we could group-assault the prime venues.
    maybe when a (well-behaved) hurricane comes up the coast.
    we could forge a social model that could be applied to other (well, east coast) states.
