Rhode Island Surf Conditions

Narragansett Town Beach

Skill Level: For everyone.
Wave Type: Beach Break.
Best Swell Direction: ESE.
Best Wind Direction: WNW to WSW.
Best Tide: All tides.
Swell Direction Range: E to SSE.
Surfable Break Size: Thigh and up.
Bottom Type: Sand.

Comments: A nice beach break right in Narragansett. Can get really crowded in the summer, especially on days with good weather. Town beach is often bigger and more surfable than other area breaks, but sometimes closes out.
Hazards: Summer crowds.
Localism: None.
Directions: Its in Narragansett, you can't really miss it once there.
Parking: The large parking lot right in front of the beach, which is ~$10.

Pt. Judith Lighthouse

Point Judith aka. The Lighthouse
Skill Level: For advanced and expert surfers only.
Wave Type: Point Break.
Best Swell Direction: SSE.
Best Wind Direction: NW to WSW.
Best Tide: Mid tide.
Swell Direction Range: ESE to SSW.
Surfable Break Size: Thigh plus.
Bottom Type: Stone reef, rocks, large boulders.

Comments: Long rights on the east side of the point (this side is protected from W to SW winds). A shorter left on the west (south) side that needs shoulder plus S or SE surf. Another top New England spot. Not for beginners, there are large boulders and rocks everywhere. Also this is not a good spot to bring no-surfing friends (no real beach, all there is to see is a lighthouse, from the outside).
Hazards: Shallow rock bottom. Large rocks. Did I mention rocks.
Localism: When it gets crowded, rudeness, more than localism, emerges (but mostly from the many barely post-pubescent groms which frequent this break).
Directions: Take Rt. 1 follow signs to Point Judith, take right before you hit the Ocean and got the end of the road (you'll see the lighthouse).
Parking: Large parking lot right in front of the lighthouse.
Links to Check Before You Go: n/a.

East Matunuck State Beach

Closest Buoy (Live Feed):

Matunuck

Skill Level: Experienced surfers.
Wave Type: Point Break (3 Points).
Best Swell Direction: SSE.
Best Wind Direction: NW to NE.
Best Tide: Low to mid tide.
Swell Direction Range: SE to SSW
Surfable Break Size: Waist plus.
Bottom Type: Rocks, boulders, and periwinkles.

Comments: Slow lefts and rights, unless really big. One of the top long boarding spots in New England when in the waist to chest range. The faster left on the west is part of a break called Trestles, which is in front of the west end of the parking lot. Deep Hole is actually the slow right to the east of the parking lot. There is also an area to the west of Trestles close to the Ocean Mist, called Mary's Bar, which consists of several different breaks depending on tide and wave size/direction.
Hazards: Shallow rock bottom. Summer crowds can be a hazard to a good surf session...
Localism: Some in the summer when it gets crowded.
Parking: Small parking lot right in front of the main break (unfortunately reserved for boating).
Links to Check Before You Go: n/a.

Quick tip:
Check winds for favorite spots.
Swell height 3.5' and higher.
Wave period 9 secs. or higher,
your good to go. Any thing less, bring your log.
Surf only lasts a day maybe two, once a month.
Beter yet, save for real surf trip.

Out.

Wondered if anyone has safely body-surfed Pt. Judith, it looks like there is a body-surf break straight off the point that hits the big boulder and a couple smaller submerged ones, figured maybe safe on the left of that. I take my board-surfing boy and have body-surfed Matnuck on a clean uncrowded day a bit bigger than waist high, mid-low tide. Thanks for any advice.

Being born and raised in Gansett and living 3 min from PJLH one thing I would add is that the "barely post pubescent groms" are now in their late 20's to 30's and much bigger then what you would consider a "grom"!!! This review was written a long time ago...
