Located toward the Northern edge of Massachusetts, Salisbury is a good beach break that rolls over a sand bottom. The waves here are pretty straightforward to surf, and break for up to 100 meters providing some good sections for manoeuvres. The take off is a bit wedgy when it is good, have fun.
What are the best surf conditions for Salisbury?
Gets good from waist high to double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when it is smaller and a shortboard when the size steps up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is not the most consistent (4/10) and is almost never crowded (3/10). This beach faces Northeast, so a Southwest winds blows offshore. Works best on Northeast and East swells. Works on all tides but mid to high is best.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 wetsuit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 19 degrees. In winter the 4 degree water necessitates a 5/4 wetsuit. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
