SURFING in Martha's Vineyard??

By any chance, is there actually any surf to ride in Martha's Vineyard? I picture it to be all cliffs, rocky and dangerous, but there are beaches mentioned. Any advice to a girl with a husband that only goes on vacation where there is surf??

We have friends that enjoy surfing at Long Point. It's a Trustees of Reservations property, so there are limited cars allowed and a small entrance fee, but it's open to the public. Some South beaches are better than others. Chilmark has two beaches good for surf; Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket. You'll need a pass, in the summer, which is for residents only, but in to fall, they don't really check.

You'll find more rocks at Squibby and Lucy, but Long Point is pretty clear. Overall, the surf spots aren't all the rocky and cliffs are not an issue.

If your husband has specific questions, Elaine, at The Green Room, a surf/skate shop in Vineyard Haven, can help him out.
