well there are a few places you can go, if you want to head up north, you can hit up hampton beach, there are a few spots up there, most notably "the wall". Its about an hour drive. Look for cinnamon rainbow surf shop... it is RIGHT on the beach. The problem is, the surf is not all that consistent there, it is usually small. So, you may want to make a trip to nantucket... my favorit place to go. Its an hour and a half car ride followed by a two hour ferry, but the waves there are the most consisten you can find in new england. If you go there, you should hit up "the Sham", really really nice beach. Also, "cisco" is a big spot to go surfing. Localism is not there, don't step on their toes... and they wont talk to you... but yeah... enjoy.

also try horsenech beack. In the wintertime/fall this place can go off (like all the beaches in NE when a Noreaster or hurricane comes in).

Ehi, I'm coming to Ashburnam, near boston, in a few days. I'm a windsurfer and I was wondering if there are some spots to go windsurfing in the area.

Everyone from New England will tell you Hampton Beach is awesome. Watch out though, it tends to get very crowded. As said earlier, The Wall, which is right across from Cinnamon Rainbows Surf Co. (right on rt 1a) is the normal surf spot. If its crowded there, or if the waves are very rough (which does happen), drive a bit further north. You will find some nice breaks in the Rye area. Its about 5-10 minutes further, and youll see people up there too. Other places to go, although I dont know too much about them, are Plum Island and also Good Harbor Beach. Plum is in Newburyport, Good Harbor in Gloucester. If you're really looking for some bigger waves though, try going to the Islands or to the Cape, as these places are the most exposed. Beware though, the islands and cape, if staying overnight, can get VERY expensive.
