dude,

the locals at all the no maine spots are worse than rye.  All the spots are reef/rocks.  And, the tides increase significantly as you go north.  If you have the $$$$ hit scotia, that penninsula has more breakes than rhode islant and so maine.  I am a local long boarder and booger.  My best advice is to go to canada, the conditions here are extremly fickle.  And, be wary of small point
there is this asshole named DR. MILLER who almost got me and my bros arrested.  Try reid state park works w/sw wind short board only and gets to 5X over head during storms like felix and fabian. Frankly if I was a bostonian i would hang at ruggles and othe R.I spots.

Good luck,

Ill agree with you the rocks and ledges are trecherous here. I live in Bar Harbor and there are some breaks around but you really have to know what your doing or you'll be floating fish food. Otherwise there isn't much up here...stick with your sand beaches...

I live on Mount Desert island. I'll have to agree. It's all ledges here. If you don't study an area to surf you'll end up as fish food. Try going to canada. Maybe you'll have better luck

The surf in maine north of portland is actually really good you just have to find it but me and my friends took a boat out for two weeks and went up the coast of maine and in thanksgiving week we surfed on an island near Boothbay harbour for 6 days strait. We stayed at the same island and slept on the boat and for 3 of the days it was head to overhead high and the other three days it was waist to chest. It was unbeleivable. I have surfed in maine all of my life and i have never got so many barrells in one day. When it was head high to overhead the barrells were so big. I could not beleive that we were in maine.

There's sw harbor, left over against cliffs, but it's good ONLY at incoming tide with wind swell ricocheting off cliff and hitting backwash from cobble beach; breaks 2-3' with 6' A-frame quickly folds, spits, then closes- QUIT erasing me and fav spot or I'll lynch your grammamaaa!

I've surfed a bunch of spots north of Portland, and have enjoyed excellent surf in all of them for years. Look at a map and you can figure out where the surf is. Pay attention to the tides. My favorite break, one hour from Bangor, only works from two hours before low tide to two hours after, then it washes out.
