About Matunuck

This concentrated area of quality waves is one of the focal points of Rhode Island surfing. Three main peaks start with Deep Hole to the east, Trestles in the middle, and The Point to the west. Deep Hole is essentially only a left that is fast and sectiony at low tide. Trestles, like its California cousin, is a shapely peak with hollower rights and down-the-line lefts at lower tides. The Point is a peak with a short, bowly right and a long workable left, which can link into The Bar at higher tides, making for a long wave to practice cutbacks. All these waves break over cobblestone/boulder reefs, and they all handle good size. High tide still has good shape, but it makes the walls slower and fatter. Swell-wise, SE makes The Point line up, E is best for Trestles and Deep Hole, but they all still work on a due S.

Guaranteed always crowded including kayakers and jetskis. Rip currents and difficult paddle-outs when big. Year round free parking lot.
