Hi!
Check surfline.com and look at the East Coast surfcams- as mentioned by others, swell is intermittent, and greatly depends on tropical waves/depressions and (hopefully) hurricanes.  There are many many more longboard days than shortboard days, and most all the shops have rentals.  Weekend or Day trips from Boston mught include Newport, Rhode Island- Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard (very swell dependent- check FNMOC or surfline for bouy heights), Narragansett etc.  Welcome to the USA!

yeah, there is surf.  Obviously not as good as in ausi.  Hampton beach, NH.  Cape Cod, MA, and some spots in RI are pretty good.  These range from 1 hour to 2 hour drive.

of course. if u ride down to long island theres some great breaks here.  World class in winter time.  In summer you can wear board shorts the water gets around upper 60's in summer on long island....up closer to boston/cape cod its freezing.  but long island has great surf and ive surfed cape cod a couple a times. you can catch a ferry from boston to the cape and ride to nauset light beach for som good surf

anyone who knows the JUICE, knows that RHODE ISLAND has less shelf offshore than Long Island, and as a result, is ALWAYS BIGGER. Just check out the wave with the 35 foot face in one of the fall, 1989 editions of SURFER MAGAZINE with Wes Lane on the cover surfing that macker at Ruggles.

Just look at the pictures of Ruggles when its breaking twelve to fifteen feet, and of course, one of two TOW SURFING spots on the East Coast - THE LEDGE a couple of miles offshore that gets freakin' HUGE.  There is also a tow spot offshore in Rye, New Hampshire. The locals just watch it from point breaks pumping away inside. Long Island is good at the tip.  The rest of it is a LONG sandbar, akin to "myrtle beach" which may get shouder high surf about once a decade.

let me clear this up a little bit. you will need a 6 5 4 suit to get you  through the coldest parts of winter. boston espessially. in the summer the water will get to about 74. at its warmest in late august early september. there are waves everywhere. not jsut new york. mass has waves and so does new hampshire. the only thing about mass is you have the cape cod bay . the arm from cape cod blocks a big part of the mass coast. creating north and south shores. stay away from south shores. the best place to surf in mass is cape cod. or maybe jet down to the east bay of road island. like little compton area.

RE: is there surf on the east coast.....around boston?

yeah yankee thats why if u go to turtles in montauk it gets like 12-15 feet like twice a month from september to january. and in smiths point it gets 6 to 10 like once a week.  and i dont think this guy is a tow surfer. o and one of the best slab waves on the east coast is in montauk(its a secret spot of myne) but if the guy who posted the question really wants to no i can work something out .
