I'd love to hit up Nova Scotia, gorgeous coast line and point breaks!
If this has entered into the realm fancy, I'd like to summer in Portugal. Port, seafood and the Portugeuse; an urbane sea loving people. Anything but August would be too cold for me. 'prolly need a 4/3 then. Djou can take d'boy outch d'bayou, but yu kan take d'bayou out d'boy. That's on the East Coast, right?
New Smyrna Beach.....for some reason they seem to always have something.....when all else is flat they get 2 feet.....when other places are waist high, they are head high. O' it's sharky, but warm and fun.
PS AVOID spring break.
PSS Maybe not with the fam, but you can surf nude just south of NSB at Playa Linda Beach.
Central Florida in the winter. New smyrna is so consistent, rippable and inexpensive. Stuart is also consistent, and has some reef/rock bottom just to remind you your no longer in the mid Atlantic. Plus water and air in the 60s when its frigid back home.
Rhode island has the best waves I've ever seen one the east coast (with point breaks) but its expensive and inconsistent.
