So Hurricane Earl passed and didn't do much around here, except bring out the surfers in full force. Today I counted 118! There were more around the bend too. Here you can see 4 guys trying to surf, only 1 didn't catch that wave. As I was leaving NBC10 was pulling in to see the action!
The day before Hurricane Earl is supposed to hit Rhode Island, I went to Point Judith Lighthouse in Narragansett. I counted 80 people surfing and more were continuously joining in. Here I could count 30 surfers, only one of which is actually surfing. The windy conditions were making it very sloppy, and with so many people in the water they were constantly dodging each other. Thankfully while I was there nobody collided!
Over near Matunuck Point there are tons of people surfing. Some time I"ll get a zoom lens and get a better photo, but I thought this one captured some of the fun.
