Atmosphere

Many breaks on the island...but if you get skunked you are out on the island and the mainland is going off that has been a problem...if the swell direction isn't perfect ...you are screwed.

Weird and Fickle - Waves are fickle, its often very windy, angry locals everywhere and tough access. We got yelled at for going by boat and didnt find much surf. Cape Cod is better

Fickllleee and Localized - The Island called Block Island is a very fickle place with constant wind changes and awfully angry Gromms. I dont recommend going there at all. Hurricane season brings rowdy crowds and angry locals, plus onshore winds. You would be better off trying Cape Cod they have great surf! Going by boat is terribly looked down upom
