SURFING WITH COVID-19: Private surf lessons are available. We are currently renting surfboards and SUPs along with wetsuits. Surf your home break, now is not the best time to travel for waves. Try to surf alone or at an absolute minimum of six feet from other surfers. If a peak gets too crowded, paddle down the beach to find your own space even if the waves aren't as good. After you are done surfing, wear a mask while hanging out in the parking lot après surf to talk story. Please stay safe everyone! Here are the guidelines for Gloucester Beaches in the age of COVID-19.
