Keeping it local since 2002, with a strong community of surf sports people behind us. We are surfers, paddleboarders, windsurfers, skiers, snowboarders, and everyone from Northeast Surfing lives the sports they promote. We do not claim to be anything, we are not extreme, or hardcore. We simply promote our lifestyle and share information for others to learn, grow, and benefit from.
Northeast Surfing was started by a couple of surfers by the names of Ronnie Lees and Johnny Mac (John McInerney) in 2002. Our goal is to provide general information, forecasts, reports, and live cams, with the point of keeping it local. Our office is located on Nantasket Beach in beautiful Hull, Massachusetts, where during the months of June, July, August, and September, we run a surf school.
Our Surf School, paddleboard adventures, and week long surf and Paddle Clinics (camps), help beginners enjoy and appreciate the ocean while experiencing the thrill of surfing. With over 25 years experience, Northeast Surfing helps introduce ocean safety and surf etiquette, discuss ocean science topics such as waves and tides, marine biology, winds, coastal ecology and beach profiles, as well as teaches stretching and exercises for young and old surfers, and provides closely supervised hands-on instruction in the water.
Our Northeast Surfing Ocean Cams are great to watch storms, winds, waves, or to just check out the cool beaches and the live ocean. Or just follow us around the Northeast, chasing and riding storms, hurricanes, and blizzards. Feel free to visit our site credit here, and read our website disclaimer here.
