Located 1.3 miles off of South Shore Beach, Cutty wow is a pile of rocks that on the smallest of ground swells produces R.I.'s answer to the 'Box'. Acid drop, quick 1-3 second ceiling, then death rocks (right better than left). Discovered by lobsta' fisherman in 1975 observing coastal paddler.
When all else isn't and you can paddle back to shore in unplanned offshore, this is it- most dependable tube in N.E. (not for peter PANocchios or hair-lipped Nantasketers).Howzit!

Sharky but good - This spot hucks like the hawaiian stuff you dream of. Only you may sink your boat trying to get there when its good. Good luck.

Lobstaboiz' from Yucaipa - You've been shucked (no,no not quahogged!)- Only Mark and me surfed this in the 70-80's; it's a Shark Cove ledge, breaking from 2-4', dumps in 3' of barnacles for 5 seconds! Forget it!
