Located on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, Cape Cod National Seashore is a quality beach break that unloads over a sand bottom. The waves here are difficult to surf and break for up to 50 meters providing some of the best barrels on the entire cape. Handles size very well, check the Marconi Station area for some good, well-defined sandbars. Watch out for big marine wildlife, there is a very highly concentrated great white population here.
What are the best surf conditions for Cape Cod National Seashore?
Gets good from waist high to triple overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when the waves are smaller and a shortboard when the size arrives. This beach is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and is generally not crowded as the beaches are so long (4/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, and Southeast (a slightly angled one is ideal). Works best on low to mid tides.
We recommend wearing a spring suit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 20 degrees. In winter a 5/4 is the play when water temperatures plunge to 3 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
