Thread: visiting mass

    visiting mass

    Going to be in the Boston area for a week in September hoping to sneak away for some nortg east surf while I'm there. Any suggestions on a mellow spots that might be breaking around then? If no surf, I would like to visit some of the surf shops and towns, any ideas?

    Going to be staying around ipswitch once we are out of the city if that helps.

    Don'tknow the area... Just head to the ocean... If there's waves, it will be breaking somewhere and you will find it... Nobody is going to tell you where to go and they will most likely rip you for asking

    If your in Ipswich check in Gloucester for Good Harbor Beach or Long Beach. Those arent exactly secret spots and best chance for surf if there is any swell

    Gloucester is close to Ipswitch and a good place to check. If you have a car head up to NH and go to the Wall. There is a sur Shop Cinnamon Rainbows right at the north end which is a decent spot. The Wall is not the best spot but its hugs and if its low to mid tide you will have rideable waves. If you luck out and there is a hurricane brewing you will see large surf. Good luck on the paddle out. If you want to go a bit farther north head to Long Sands or Short sands beach in York Maine

    You gotta love the NYNJ super aggressive mentality. People up here are pretty cool about surfing and are more than willing to help a visitor find a place to surf. Maybe they will not give out their super secret spot but they will definitely give a handful of options without hesitation.

    South of Boston is Nantasket Beach in Hull. Definitely not a secret, but you need to check a surf report because it's not always breaking. Luminate Surf Shop just opened a store there.

    RID - I was actually trying to help... I wasn't being aggressive, I was preparing him for what usually happens on this site when that question comes up.

    Its a forum who gives a ****. Asked a question because I was interested in what people had to say. You are apparently a tough guy and need to let me know what other tough guys think about asking questions.

    Appreciate all the input sounds like ill check out Gloucester. Not even sure ill go surf but checking out breaks is always fun. I'd rather go check out abunch of coastal communities than be stuck in a city my whole time. Any must do's in the area that might get me off the beaten path?

    If you have the time, drive north for an hour and check out Ogunquit, ME. Wide open, really mellow, beautiful, and a fun wave if there's a swell.

    If you asked for help in an area I knew, I'd be happy to help...
