The Perfect Skate Spots: Rockport, Mass.

Nathaniel SnowCorrespondent IJanuary 6, 2017

One fine Saturday, while I was working at the Gloucester Market Basket, I decided that it was time for another Recon Mission . On my lunch break, which has recently been designated "skate time," I took a drive into neighboring Rockport in search of some new spots. Since I don’t actually know my way around Rockport, or Gloucester for that matter, I just kept on driving until I came to the ocean. The pier I had found happened to have a brick building (the one straight ahead on the GoogleMap) that serves as the Harbormasters office and the public restrooms. The handicap ramp to this building has the prefect two-tier green rail that is a great session spot.

If you are patient, though, and you have the right ability, this spot is a great one on the North Shore. The view and breeze of the ocean create a perfect atmosphere; and skating for the crowds can be fun too. I hope you get a chance to check this one out and be sure to come back soon for more of my Recon Missions here at Skate Sessions.
