Maine, New Hampshire and Boston Solo Road trip
MAINE (York - Long Sands Beach)
Going to Maine in October is the best because there is few people surfing in the water. So little people that the town feels a little deserted and being there at the end of October around Halloween makes you feel like you are in a Stephen King movie.
Surfing in ice cold water can feel hardcore at times but the sensation of riding the wave while knowing that if you fall you'll get a brain freeze is amazing. Most importantly in autumne, winter and spring the waves are much bigger. They are the biggest in the middle of the winter.
NEW HAMPSPHIRE (The Wall)
Discovered a couple of new surf spots that I hadn't tried such as ; The Wall and Jenness Beach. The Wall is a great surf spot but a little hard to surf on high tide because of all of the rocks on the side of the beach. The waves also have a good amount of power so depending on your skill level it could be a little difficult. Jenness beach is a smooth long board type of spot.
At Jenness Beach there is a cool surf shop called Summer Session Surf Shop just in front of the beach. You can rent boards, they also sell surf gear and they have a small coffee shop with salads and sandwichs.

I did a small surf break in Boston for about 12 hrs. It's a cool city and it has a bit of a Montrealish vibe.
