NARRAGANSETT â€“ Surfing is one of those big bucket list moments that many dream of. While beaches like Huntingtonâ€™s in California and Sunset Beach in Hawaii draw droves of surfers hoping to catch that big wave, Narragansett has its very own beach drawing local surfers, whether they are beginners or experts. With its commemoration of Environmental Day in Narragansett this Saturday, thereâ€™s no better time to appreciate those ocean waves or learn how to catch that first big wave.
