Nahant surf

Recommended Posts

Good to meet both of you. Had a great time surfing and checking out a little of what the North Shore has to offer. Looking forward to getting out some more.

Had a good time yesterday. Five foot wave sets came in every ten minutes or so, but there were plenty of 2-3 footers in between to try to surf. When the five footers came in I went to the soup zone to practice bracing against them; so it was all useful. Kevin suggested not leaning back and depending less on the stern rudder since that tended to stall the boat at the worse time and led to broaching. Depending more on forward strokes and edging did help. Nevertheless, I spent a considerable amount of time investigating the bottom of King's beach! It was a still a lot of fun. Ed's comments on another thread about vulnerabilities of the neck have occurred to me as well. You need to be very careful in the surf.

It was great to meet John. Will try to shake this North Shore provincialism and get down to the South Shore! Thanks for calling it Kevin.
