Drive South Ends Wave Drought


July is historically the worst month for surf, of course, the water’s warm, the temps ideal. This is New effing England, there’s always a catch. And for us it’s no waves during heat waves, no waves when the conditions resemble Cabo more than Fairbanks.

But for the dedicated and just plain lucky (me) , fun clean waves can be found. The water temps were 75°, air temps 86°, and the wind never went onshore. Imagine, late-July, it’s 1:30, fun longboard sets coming through, just trunks for the guys, bathing suits for the wahines, and a great vibe all around (just keep away from the lsd).
