Green Harbor Surf Guide

Green Harbor in Massachusetts is a sheltered beach/Jetty break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. The beach breaks favour lefts. Best around mid tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
