These are my types of waves that I like to ride. LI yesterday Hey, my name might be longboarder, but I've converted to sponging. Anyway, one weakness I notice about RI is the lack of good beach breaks. People think we have a lot of breaks, but the vast majority are rock bottom crappy mushy/slow waves. Seriously, point judith is basically almost complete mush with scattered boulders everywhere where you can crack your head open if you fall. Matunuck might be hollow, but it's a low speed wave with a very shallow drop wave that is meant for longboarding. Not a good wave for sponging. The beach breaks around here are super fickle without any real pattern. Sure they can get good. But they can also go extended periods of time sucking even with good winds/solid swell on them. And on top of it there's only a few in the whole state. You could spend all day checking each beach break in the entire state driving in circles and never find a high quality non closeout A-frame breaking NOT shorepounding like in those pics during a normal 4 feet at 9 seconds swell event. Trust me I've done it in search of good sponging waves. Lots of gas wasted without scoring on multiple occations I'm wondering if any of the spongers or short boarders find NJ to be a lot better as long as you're willing to drive and check breaks? I'm thinking since you have MILES of beach break that sand bars form in different spots? What's the verdict? NJ or RI for sponging?
