    So guys,

    I used to live in NE, I may end up moving back up because my lady commutes to Boston once a week right now. Trying to convince her to do RI if we do end up that way. I used to take maps and many drives just to check all the cliffs, coves, beaches trying to dial in the rugged coast and found a few breaks that were not surfed. There are a few places that I am extremely curious about AKA Nomans land, places around cox ledge, around block island ledge, old man, lone rock.... I don't have a ocean worthy boat but its on the list of things that are in my future (I'm big into fishing too). Does anyone here have some knowledge they would like to share about any of these spots or experience there? I have a feeling any of those outer reef breaks will be going off sat with this ground swell...

    What?? Do you think we are your "tour guides"???
    I know a few nice secluded spots nobody goes to, but I would never tell even my best friends.

    Suggestion--buy a drone--use that to look for them from the comfort of your toilet.....

    Hahahaha thanks Barry, that's exactly the response I expected. Hope you get some good swell this week. I miss surfing in NH. But we will have some killer waves here in Jerez...

    Cuttyhunk Island gets world class surf, I was told from a buddy who lives in Nantucket, who is well traveled. The trick is to not die on the boat getting in and out. Good luck mate!

    Yes. There is plenty of unsurfed coast in Rhode Island, believe it or not. For a small state there is plenty of options from beach break to true offshore slabs.

    Many are usually not surfed because of the fact it is easier to pull up to a parking lot and walk 100-200 yards to the edge of the ocean. Humans can be very lazy.

    Last I knew Nomans Land has potential, but is government property.

    Probably has plenty of unexploded bombs and stuff around there, and you thought Great Whites were an issue.

    Surfing alone is never really been my cup of tea, but if like to go solo many of the spots are all yours.

    Classic Rhode Island seldom ridden spot is...............................


    Beavertail State Park. Check it out for sh-it-ss and giggles your next time in Rhode Island. Plenty of surf, but viscous current and will actually break east and west faces at each other at the same time.

    u guys have a lot of potential up there,i never been up there but scanned the coastline to see possible spots and theres a lot of hard to access spots that probably pump.theres no such thing as a secret in nj,its just beachbreak,nothing makes it special,theres a sandbar at this spot one day,theres a sandbar a mile up the next.

    but I wouldn't expect anyone to share their secret spots,thats like asking for launch codes u just don't do it

    "No Mans land" gets big, never surfed there myself but know people who have. Seals everywhere though, my uncle and some of his buddies surfed there but got out because they saw a shark swimming around. Pretty sure lone rock is sheltered by the Elizabeth island, but there are a couple different rocks named that so not sure which one you are talking about. Cox ledge is more of a fishing spot, never heard of it being surfed, I don't think it's shallow enough. Elbow ledge is actually surfed, it gets really big so I would be careful out there. Only every seen one video of it, but there are plenty of photos. Block island is probably your best bet, most areas there have probably seldom been surfed. Cutty hunk could be compared to block island, but it has a very small window for swell direction. Block island is much more open and gets bigger waves, plus can work on different winds.

    Google earth could be your best friend...

    I have found many spots on there in many places that I have traveled... many of them actually ended up being actually popular (and not so popular) surf spots...

    So much time spent on google earth.. that's why I was asking about those landmarks they seem like they would be good but I haven't had a chance to get out to them. Google earth blew up everyone's surf spots lol...

    Yea I bet it's Sharky as South Africa out there... I once saw a baby pilot whale get washed up on the beach with huge chunks take out of it while surfing in MA. Seals on the beach too... not my brightest moment. I've never taken the boat out to block island but always wanted too.
