Ballston Beach in Massachusetts is an exposed sandbar break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northeast. The sandbar break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide when the tide is falling. Rarely crowded here. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
