    I thought my season was done after I packed up from the Cape. You guys are drawing me back in. This weekend in Cape Ann looks promising. Thinking of Good Harbor beach in Gloucester. Any beta? Never been.

    I'm a bit less optimistic about conditions this weekend. Forecasts look small and choppy. Short period waves. Maybe it will push a longboard, but little joy. I haven't been to Good Harbor for a long time but of what I remember, the southern portion of the beach worked a bit like a point break. It's a good place to go just after a nor'easter gets cranking bringing in some solid east swell but the winds are still from the north. The northern part of the beach curves a bit south so you get a bit of shelter from the winds and waves are smoother. But then, it tends to close out, so it can be a less than optimal but better than on the Cape.

    I hope you got some this past weekend. I was planning to hit the Cape on Sunday but did not have to. Nantasket beach (closest open ocean beach to me) was just great. Solid chest high on sets, nice peelers and good power. Yet, enough time betweeen sets so getting out wasn't a big fight. Just enough white water so it was a work out Off shore winds so the water was pretty smooth.

    When swell penetrates all the way to Nantasket, it's one of my favorite places. At mid tide, if the Boston bouy shows 3.5 ft + waves at 10 seconds, you can get some really long rides, especially if the waves peel. This past Sunday they did. I'm still groovin' on that. Great session. Didn't get out until my hamstrigs started to cramp. There was enough of a rip current so staying in right palce took a bit of constant work.

    Don't give up on season yet. The tropics should bring at least one more decent wave maker soon and water will stay warm enough for a 3/2 mm rubber for probably another 3 weeks. I'll keep an eye out for a guy with a green longboard
    Live for today

    still trunkable down here with a 1mm long sleeve for the mornings....i've been sup surfing the smaller mushy days where i normally wouldnt go out on my 9'0" longboard....having a blast and getting a great core workout at the same time....those who knock SUP surfing have no idea how much harder it is than regular surfing...

    Not giving up on the season by a long shot. Made plans to head down to Cape Ann or Matunuck (opposite directions, I know) for Sunday. Will make a game time decision. Friend needs company in the waves and I'm happy to oblige. Didn't go out last weekend because I needed to do all the chores that I've been putting off because of the summer. Glad you guys got some.

    Thanks for the beta on Good Harbor. If I hit Nantasket, I'll let you know. I'll defeinitely be up on the Cape Columbus Day weekend. Coast Guard Beach. If I don't have the green longboard, look for the kook with the blue funboard.

    Never knocked SUPs. As long as you're riding, it's all good. My only problem are the runaway SUPs. Man, those things can really hurt! If you're still on the Cape, I'll be there on Columbus Day.
