Day Trip: Winter Surfing in Westport
Surfing in the Pacific Ocean in the middle of winter sounded like a crazy idea to me until I was invited to try it with some friends. I jumped at the opportunity to try something new even though I was a little nervous about the cold water, sharks and lack of experience.
Note: You will need a Discovery Pass to park in the Fairhaven State Park lot. There are two surf shops in Westport where you can rent gear: Steepwater Surf Shop and the Surf Shop in Westport. Make sure to call ahead and check open hours and availability.
