    I used to make that same trip, but usually after Labor Day. I'd also take overnight trips out of NYC (when I lived there), to RI. It sticks out so nicely to pick up those hurricane swells. I've gotten a few big days at Pt Judith and two at Ruggles. Even surfed the reef way outside of there. I think it was called Green Point. Also surfed inside the harbor to the right of Pt Judith, as well as M., west across the inlet. As well as more east of Newport. Some really fun waves in RI. It is where the east coast shifts all sand to mostly rock, but is still exposed to a variety of swells. Some of the best reef breaks in the east. I always though the cobblestone reef at M. was an exceptional left when it was head high or more. 3 out of 5 the biggest days I've had on the east coast have been in Rhode Island. Two at Judith and one at that reef outside of Ruggles.

    And what cold ME water are you nipping about? I was just there at the change of months and it felt quite warm. Spent hours in the water with my son and nephews with out a chill. I think it was 52F where I surfed yesterday. Much warmer today with no upwelling and south flow. Maybe even 60F. BTW, heard O was stomach and Wells waist, so it sounds like you scored.
    Yup, we stayed east of Newport and scored on a nice cobblestone left. Would have preferred a right though... Figured Ruggles and anything close to Newport would be jacked. South facing beaches closed at high tide because the surge was filling the parking lot.

    I'm in Gloucester, so we don't get the warm gulf stream waters that Maine gets (seriously). We topped out at high 60s a few weeks ago, but water is back down to 62. We just never get that comfortable warm water for extended periods of time in the summer. Yes, warmer than SC water, but much cooler than the low 70s down in Rhode Island from Gert (btw, what gender is Gert?).

    fkna today was sweet. I had a big window and ended up surfing for two hours, talking a half hour lunch and getting back in for 90 more minutes. Only left because I felt the need to act like an adult and get shit accomplished. A bit smaller than yesterday, but still head high sets. And it seemed like the new swell was filling in late with some rare plus sets. Longer wait between sets, but it was tube city out there today. Many I got in but not out, but perhaps more I more than that I was able to not only make it out, but find a rippable section waiting for me. Fog burned off at lunch. Almost oil glass. Super fun day, and I feel lucky I was able to get this on a day where not only can I surf, but I have a five hour window to work. Used it all basically to surf. Summer vacation day.
