SUP in Horseneck Beach State Reservation, Westport County,
Horseneck Beach is situated in the southern part of eastern Massachusetts, in Westport County and is widely known for the variety of activities it offers.
If the weather is good, usually in mid-summer, the place is crowded and water sports fans must go to the very left or right side of the beach.
The beach itself is sandy with a few rocks. You should not mind about the tide position as at this beach, all tides are welcoming SUP fans without causing trouble. It is also a beginners spot when the wind is calm, but more experienced athletes can easily paddle, when the wind is a bit stronger. Swell size starts at 1 m/3 ft and goes up to 2 m/6 ft.
The best months to visit Horseneck Beach are from May to August. From September and on, as the wind is getting stronger and the waves higher, even the most experienced SUP fans know that exercising their favorite sport will be somehow more difficult.
