I've seen Popham beach break at chest high - also I have spoken to some lobster boat owners in Rockland and I hear that there are islands that break off of tenants harbour. Good luck and let us know what you find - I headed to PR!!!!

im a nova scotia transplant from pei. yes there are some waves on pei but not like that guy was saying. the north shore of pei is your best bet, the problem with it is there isnt much open ocean in front of it so it takes a good system to get any swell going. there are a few locals getting into it now, youll probably see a small surfing community building over the next few years there now. no need to take a quiver here, just pack a malibu and maybe a big fat cheater. I hear you new englanders like your seafood, well youll love the food on pei because it is second to none!!! cont'd

your best bet in seeing any waves here are from mid august to november. the best part of it is the water is VERY warm. but still take a 3/2 incase the jelly fish are in shore to spawn. PEI is also a world renoun spot to windurf, and skim board so if you get skunked you can try other things. worst case scenerio you can come throug nova scotia ill get ya into some pretty good waves and beer! it surprises me how some people on this forum are that ignorrant to say that there are no waves north of portland. that sounds like west coast talk to me. hey im goin to travel to maine hopefully this summer for a couple of weeks where are the best places to stay? are there campgrounds near some good waves? whats the scene like there, cool people?

Okay Tom ill take your word for it if your a long time maine native. so is what your telling me that there is a super small window of a handful of breaks but those are probably the better quality waves in N.S. well probably get a good swell window of about 3 to 7 days before the fun is over but thats probably typical all way down to cocoa beach. most of our popular surfing beaches and breaks get closed out too on a 6 to 8 meter swell but there are alot of semi protected bays and coves we migrate to and find incredible surf which usually doesnt exist in these areas.

i can see how maine might not have as descent surf as nova scotia because from about 500 km out the ground gets super shallow and kills alot of energy from ocean by the time it hits maine. plus were almost exactly east of the so they only catch a good southeast or south swell leaving them with more flat days than us. oh well the bitches are still worth the drive!
