The photos were taken after the storm on Tuesday morning, at dead low tide, standing almost to Salt Island and looking toward Thacher Island. I don’t recall ever seeing such enormous waves at low tide and will stay tuned in the future. Look for the surfer’s head in the waves 🙂

Brrrrrrrrr–today’s early morning Gloucester surfers on the back shore–the water temperature is 40 degrees.
Thursday afternoon as the waves were inviting for the local surfers.
Thinking of those dealing with no power, evacuation and such destructive, icy flooding.
January 5, 2018 vs Storm January 4, 2018
Today here come the surfers
Rocks have clear icy layers and crunch pack, some pockets of drift
I’m following up on yesterday’s post, which was stopped midstream as we lost power. Scroll below for quick snaps and videos from my walk to Good Harbor Beach, Long Beach, and side streets.
GOOD HARBOR BEACH 1.4.18
About 2PM January 4, 2017 (high tide was several hours earlier)
Good Harbor Beach on sand looking out to Salt Island (from Good Harbor Beach Inn side of beach) Yes, the waves were rolling over the wall up to the homes but infrequently at this time. I don’t know what it was like at high tide.
(more Good Harbor Beach and Long beach below the break)

Pretty Spindrift Wave
Beautiful fifty degree weather today and happy to be home to Gloucester. Running errands this morning and just had to stop at the Jodrey Fish Pier for the view and take a walk on Good Harbor Beach on this glorious and unseasonably warm day.
Love seeing the growing number of surfers along Cape Ann beaches. Perhaps Hurricane Gaston will bring the Big Swells!
Good Harbor Beach Surfers
I headed out to capture some footage during the epic 40 degree heat wave on Sunday. I came across some guys who where also a little restless to get back to the great outdoors. I never met them, so I don’t have their names. I shot some pretty cool video, but I thought I would share some snap shots first. Now you have to have a very solid set of stones to paddle out in these waters this time of year. New England has some pretty decent waves in the off season, so it’s not really ever “off-season” for the surfers. If you know these kats, tell them to hit me up!

I often see the surfers arriving en mass at daybreak and then departing around 8:30–I imagine heading off to work. What a terrific way to start the work day! For the daily New England surf forecast, visit New England Surf.
Went to watch these surfers with kites.. it reminds me of snow boarding on the water with kites. Looks fun
