Winter swell is consistently good but obviously the water is balls cold.  Summer time is weak most of the time but the occasional storm offshore can make things decent to good.  I live about 10 minutes north of Boston and I go to a few spots...Hampton, NH and York, Maine, both about an hour north, as well as there's some great spots in Rhode Island if you're willing to make the 1.5-2 hour drive south.  Mass itself has some good spots, but it really has to be hitting to be any good.   Cape Cod has some really good, consistently bigger spots, but from Boston you're looking at at least an hour and a half drive or so.  Best bet to most any place is driving.

Babe ?  Take a look at a map of the Boston erea.  If you look, you'll see that Boston has to many harbors and bays .  And the small beaches don't get alot of surf, because of them.    Just like Southern South Carolina, All the way down through georgia.  Again Too many back bays, Harbours, so no swell can Develope.  I suggest Driving North to NewHampshire or Cape Cod or Even L.I.

You guys are retarded. I got a perfect 4-5foot left sandbar yesterday. I even got a little barrel. Gloucester is where its at. You can take the T to gloucester and walk to the beach. There is also some insane heaving slabs up there if your brave enough.

Again, there are cobblestones and beach breaks,,,harldy called slabs, more like shorebreak closeouts. The true surf is 90 min. to Cape Cod, S-E exposures with consistent offshore trades. Gosee the BoSox and forget the 'dirty water'.

Hey bro,
     I am moving to Boston in four months to go to school at Berklee. I'm going to go crazy if I don't get any waves while I'm up there. Where are some good spots, I don't have a car so I am looking at bus rides and T rides.

   Thanks,
         Drew

I don't know about Boston, it's too cold for me. You guys always can come to Puerto Rico for a Surf trip. I have a surf resort and we have waves from november to april. Check this place out.www.surf787.com
