 Additional Information

To get in the water from the parking lot you have to hike down a pretty steep cliff and negotiate your way through large boulders and rocks everywhere. Its a pretty decent paddle on a big day, at least it is if you paddle out right. Do not try to paddle out next to the point there is a "Death Zone" where you can find yourself pinned against the rocks and getting hit hard by the waves, do yourself a favor and paddle out the long way.

Atmosphere

Spot can be one of the best on the east coast when its on. Has been described as the J-Bay of the East, but this occurs very very rarely when 5 or 6 sections connect to create an unbleivable ride. Usually up to 3 sections connect and its a great wave. Shark hazard is only a precaution not talking Florida danger here. The was a shark the hung around for about 3 weeks a couple years back but that didn't stop the surfers from paddling out. The south side of the Point is a very dangerous area, as if the other side is any safer. The south side can only be surfed on really really big swells and is almost like a completly different wave. You'll probably get stink eyed by some of the locals, mainly the young groms and/or older guys.

No J-Bay - Anyone that compares Point Judith to J-Bay has never surfed J-Bay. Honestly, Judith can turn on, but those rocks nearly never work as perfectly as you imagine they will. Just when you think it's gonna be perfect, there's some mushy spot or closeout section f-n it up. Someone should take a chain and a truck and reorganize the rocks. It can be awesome, but it just doesn't happen enough. Still a great spot, but J-bay is 1000 times better. For real.
