Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Huge tidal ranges, extreme winters and some excellent surf characterise the states of New England. The varied coastline means somewhere will always be offshore. Temperatures drop to little above freezing in the winter. Summer is obviously warmer but less consistent. Maine has some great breaks dotted around its numerous coves and inlets but the water is frigid in winter and still cold in summer. New Hampshire's limited 13 miles of coastline packs a decent punch with several excellent breaks, including points reefs and beaches. And can handle almost any size swell, which is useful on a coast that can commonly receive waves in excess of 10ft/3m during the productive winter season. Massachusetts has some excellent set-ups but possesses a challenging geography which combines offshore islands to keep the surfing community small. The best surfing is to be found south of Boston. Rhode Island "The Ocean State" receives the best swell of the bunch and has a thriving surfing community along its 40 mile coast. Autumn's hurricane season is the best bet with consistent surf in the 6 to 8ft/2-2.5m range.
