Maine - North Surfing

About Maine - North

Maine gets the frontiersville tag if you're looking at surfing north of Portland. From the capital south to New Hampshire, Ogunquit is the main focus; this is where the bulk of the surfing population either live or hang out. Winter northeast swells provide the most consistent source of sizable waves since the Maine coast can find itself eclipsed from some hurricane swells by Cape Cod to the south.
Winter water temperatures can plunge below freezing with the ocean 'slushing' in places, but recent years have seen milder temps prevail, possibly linked to the global warming phenomenon.
