Along New Hampshire and Maine's coastline there is surf to be had. However, the water is cold and surf can be few and far between. Check out www.cinnamonrainbows.com for surf cams and www.wetsand.com for pretty good forecasts.

if you go to the lower cape, bring your wettie! you'll need it. good waves for a beginner; that's where i learned. rhode island has warmer water, and at certain beaches there is VERY little seaweed. average of 1-3 ft but keep an eye out for the swells :) they can be pretty big

Yup, there's def surf within an hour of Boston.
There're beach breaks in both Hull and, even better Scituate.
Look up Nor'easter surf shop in Scituate for boards...they've got a daily surf report hotline to let you know whats up too.
If its flat here, there's always both RI AND NH (Hampton beach).

I live and surf in RI and when it gets big here your not going to catch a lot because the locals wait for these days all year, especially in september and november when surf is the best. I live about 5 minutes from a break that rhymes with smuggles and surf it even when its breaking right off the point. It is very consistent. Come during the winter with a 6/5/4 mm wetsuit and just ask local surfers (not guys on bics) where all the spots are and do not drop in on any of them or you can leave the water because we really don't appreciate massholes, especially when the waves are good. And if you do find Ruggles I dare you to ride a longboard.
PS: Feel free to drop in on any bics you see.

There is surf in all of new england. The cape probably being the most consistent. There are some nice points in northern mass and the small coastline of NH. There is also some good beachbreaks in Maine and if you are looking for some mysto breaks go far north in maine. There are a lot of points and slabs once you get past Portland. I've travelled up there and seen them myself and its heavy because the continental shelf is right off the coast. But there is freezing water even in the summer.

Just discovered this site, and only have a few comments: You're from Jersey, STAY IN JERSEY (Beachbreak bungholioes don't know how to surf big points!), Massatwoshits locals, STAY IN HOMOROCK (Cape has wonderful close-outs, and go suck a gaper! No, not a Goosewing barrel, but a juicy long-necked clam (you're probably good at that, clam-smacker!). Why don't you make some decals with 'globalsurf', so I only flatten their tires? YES , Rhody is SACRED, much like Cannon Beach, Velzyland, Mauritius, etc. Expect NOT to be treated with royalty!
