Newport RI needs your help to save Ruggles!

Please sign! I've kite surfed Ruggles once but the wind gets too funky in there but it's a world class break when it's big and it could be wrecked with the jetty piers they want to build :(

Been there, sweet spot when the wind is right. Glad a better solution is in the works.

Best,

Looks like the pier jetties have been abandoned in the plan, hopefully true. Would be a shame to loose the East Coast's best big wave spot :thumb:
