I met up with a couple of my friends in Errol, NH on Friday night and we hiked into Smooth Ledge on the Rapid River in Maine on Saturday.
It's a nice place for park and play with a long runout, warm water, and smooth rock ledges to sun, socialize, and generally hang out for the day.
Here's Jeff Marquis sliding into Smooth Ledge for a bit of surfing action.
Look at Pat "mayor" Taft ripping it up with his hand paddles.
Smooth Ledge is a really friendly hole at 1300 with a good shoulder for surfing and a nice pocket for throwing down.
We ran into alot of local rippers, including Maine-native Chuck Mathieu.
I did put the camera down and jump into my boat for a few sessions too.
When the spot got a little crowded around lunch time we took inspiration from the cruisers and made the easy hike up a dirt road to the top of the three pitches. (then of course we went right back to surfing one of the best park and play features in the New England)
