Not good for surfing - The Seychelles suffer from his poor exposure to SW swell. So the swell is mostly of the time generated by windswell when the SE trade have a good fetch. Consequently, it creates swell and wind in the same direction so surfing is mostly of time sloppy and on shore.

NEED TO FIND THE BEST LEFT IN SEYCHELLE!! - I am from the South Carolina, United States. I graduated from a military college. I'm at a dead end job. My love is the ocean. If anyone ever reads this and lives in the U.S. and is traveling to Seychelles by boat or plane. Let me know. I'm in desperate need of a life finding experience. duffiej@gmail.com
