About K38/39

The longest left on the East Coast breaks over a mussel bed reef inside the breakwall of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge. Known as “The Ks” these two deep-water peaks provide long, workable walls on the lefts and shorter, steeper rights at K39’s more eastern take-off point. No barrels, even when it’s as big as it gets, making it a favorite for longboarders and cruisers. S or SE swell only, lower tides, with winter NE’ers being just enough offshore.

The third-largest fishing port on the East Coast means motorized traffic, including jetskis. No parking at the busy commercial port, so parking at the lighthouse and walking almost a mile along the breakwall is the best bet. Average consistency at best.
