K38and39 in Rhode Island is a fairly exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the northeast with some shelter here from northeast winds. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the south southeast. Primarily a left hand reef break, although a right is also possible.. Best around low tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks, rips,jetskis.
