Located just south of Boston in Massachusetts, Scituate is a quality point break that peels over a boulder covered bottom. The take-off here is pretty mellow but the inside can get a quick and occasionally barrel. The waves here break for up to 200 meters, and the sections are usually good for hacks and carves.
What are the best surf conditions for Scituate?
Gets good at waist high and handles up to double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard when the size steps up. This break is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here sometimes has a wave (4/10) and will always have a crew on it (7/10). The best winds are offshore from the Northwest. Needs a big East swell to wrap in nicely. 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 we recommend wearing a 5/4 when temps drop to 3 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
