About Nantasket Beach

The curve of this long beach catches the full swell window because the southern end faces NE and the northern end almost faces SE. This means SW to NW winds will be offshore depending which end you’re at. All tides are possible although dead high will do it no favors. Optimum conditions would be W winds, a NE groundswell, and 4 hours before high to produce longer rides from further outside, which can be fast, steep, and hollow, then slow, fat, and mushy, along various sections of the wave all the way to the beach. Best described as a variety pack.

Consistent wave magnet that only gets crowded when everyone hits the same peak either in front of one the many pay carparks or the surf shop in Hull. Minor northerly drift, occasional stormwater run-off, and inconsiderate tourists’ trash.
