Greenhill in Rhode Island is a fairly exposed beach break that has reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast with some shelter here from northeast winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south southeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights and there is also a left hand point break. Best around low tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks and rips.
