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.

News Image Habagat’s Irony, The beauty and the destruction
With its typically placid waters the Davao Gulf is not known for any surfing grounds, however the month of August heralds a climatic exception when the placid waters give way to the monsoon waves of Habagat. The season lasts a little over a month and this year it has been one the most active monsoons for some time with large stretches of the coastline drastically altered by the ravages of the flooding waves and many unfortunate coastal communities having their lives turned upside down. Local victims of these erratic climatic patterns are substantiating what climatologists have started to term as collateral damage from western emissions. Few locals see any benefit from these changes and the damaging waves, but the angry forces of nature bring a paradox of both pleasure and pain. For the few local surfers the coastline was lit up. The power and beauty of nature’s energy in its most raw form unfolded upon their shores exposing how the coastline of Davao Gulf is perfectly moulded for the art and sport of Surfing
