How to surf this spot?
Well, take your board, paddle out and surf!
It's really easy to surf here
It's really crowded, at the weekends you'll have to share the spot with a lot of Boogieborders!
In the winter there's nobody!
Take a good wetsuit, because the water gets really cold!!!
The spot worked really well during Hurrican Charly, but when the winterstorms in the Atlantic hit the Coast it can get really big!!!
While I've been there it was about 4 and 12 feet!
If it gets too big nobody is allowed to go surfing,swimming,etc. In the winter the Lifeguards are gone and you can do whatever you want!
If the waves get too big for Misquamicut go to Watch Hill, I've heard stories about clean 18 foot waves!!!
