Features:
Parking

Water

Type:
Shallow, Flat, Chop
Hazards:
Swimmers, Currents, Ships, Shells
Quality:
Clean
Best Tide:
Low tide, Falling tide

Flat to choppy water. Excellent flat water in a N and NW across the lagoon. Best on SW with tide running out approaching dead-low as current works to keep you upwind and sand bars create larger slicks at low tide.

Sandy point with enough space for rigging kites, more on low tide, less on high tide.

Spring:
Normal, Thick
Summer:
Shorts, Shorty
Fall:
Normal, Thick
Winter:
Thick

No wetsuit required July and August. Shorty required June and September. Full wetsuit required May and October. Drysuit required November to April.

Wind

Best Months:
May, June, July, August, September
Wind Type:

Best Direction:
SW, W
Main Direction:
SW

Further east SW is sideshore. Best winds during summer, SW winds about 80% of the time. September is the best month with good winds, no tourists and warm water. Pretty much any direction works here to some extent, but some will be a long, long walk home if you break something. The more S, the gustier it is.

Transport
Car
Access
No information

From Nantucket drive east to Polpis, and here drive north to Pocomo. In Pocomo drive either north to the lagoon in a SW if you want sideshore wind, or keep driving westwards to the end of the road, here you will find the Point.

Extra information

Rules
Zones

Must rig and launch at very end of point and immediately enter water and ride away as this is a busy family/kid beach in the summer. During summer months the harbor master will place two buoys out on either side of the point marking a "No Fly Zone" that riding inside of is not allowed, except for heading out after launching or coming in just before landing. This is to ensure the safety of the people on the beach and is a very serious deal on this small island. There are plenty of people who will call the police and the harbor master if you are seen to be riding inside of this perimeter. Please obey the rules and don't mess it up for everyone else.
