Atmosphere

Mix of old and young surfers. Can become heavily crowded during summer months with vacationers. Longboard, shortboard, hybrids all come here. Majority of Jenness locals are real nice and willing to share waves. Wallies (Wall Surfers) sometimes venture north during high tide and break becomes more crowded. Beach is about a mile long, so plenty of room to spread out, no need to crowd around break in front of parking lot.

Jenness Beach, NH

Unexpected goodness - Fun little session after rainstorm rolled through. Very few others out and had 3' clean waves coming through in sets. Wind had died down to nothing leaving conditions glassy. Jenness isn't the most consistent or largest break in New Hampshire
