RE: What is the best surf spot in R.I.?

when I was a kid I used to surf Point Judith a rocky point break great in the winter- cold and gets pretty heavy sometimes. Or you can surf Matunick I don't know the spelling but it a fun beachier spot that can have long glassy waves in the right conditions.  Those are the 2 spots I remember and it was almost 40 years ago WOW how time flies

Point J. has unfortunately been the object of assault and scorn-  In the 70's, Peter Pinocchio and Dave Leven dropping in on everyone with their 12' sticks; then Mobil oil tried to fill wetland at K-39; now, so much sewage, you don't have to have a board that floats- the toxins do it for you.  The only crew that mastered that wave was Roger Williams College surf team.

Rhode Island has no waves, Jaws leviathans cruising mile-long sandbars at Taylor Lane and Sakonnet Point, and only lobstering at deep-water reefs like Warren Point and Cuttywow Rocks- it's too small for tow-ins at Elbow Ledge and Breyton Point, silly! Go to Gansett, man!

Jeff Divine, Mark Rasmussen, and Oppy all loved Goosewing Beach -Middle's, a left and right mellow version of Velzyland, Corners, 100 yd. right wall (ask Mark), and the Cove, slingshot right off rocks on w. end of beach. It's owned by Nature Conservancy, pristine, striper and bluefishing in fall, great birdwatching, and hot Va' and Yorker gals in summer. Be there!
