 Additional Information

You need to be ready to handle a wipeout that could hold you underwater for up to a minute depending on how big the waves are. You also need to be assisted by a PWC at all teams and it is a good idea to go with a team of at least five people in case of an emergency. Watch the wave for a while so you know how far out the waves break and how far out the set waves break. You do not want to get caught inside here because of how heavy the wave is. You could probably paddle into a wave here with a 10 ft gun, but so far people have only towed in here.

Atmosphere

This spot is very intimidating because you are far offshore. There is a lot of marine life out there and there are sharks out there. Although, no human has ever been attacked by a shark in the state of Rhode Island.

General

I have seen this wave breaking from cliff-walk and while surfing at Ruggles. I have only seen it breaking during the winter, but it does break during summer hurricane swell. I wouldn't recommend traveling from anywhere outside of the Northeast because you will probably be disappointed, but when it is breaking i guarantee you won't be disappointed. This is the biggest wave in New England and has potential to be the biggest wave on the east coast.
