Located in Rhode Island, K38/39 are a pair of long reef/point waves that break inside the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge. The waves here break over a boulder covered bottom for up to 300 meters, providing great sections for manoeuvres. This spot never gets steep even at larger size making it a favourite for longboarders.
What are the best surf conditions for K38/39
Gets good from chest high to double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here, or some other high volume craft. This break is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here is not consistent (4/10) and is generally crowded when good (8/10). The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the South and Southeast. Low to mid tides deliver the goods.
We recommend wearing a spring suit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 21 degrees. In winter the water temperatures drop to 1 degree necessitating a 5/4. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
