There IS surf in the Bahamas - That's where I learned to surf. Of course, back in the 1970's the weather was colder, and the cold fronts would hold out longer and kick up pretty good north swell. Nassau is surfable a couple of days a year, although when I was a kid we went surfing all the time, it seems. Or course, Abaco and Eleuthera can get really good. When people say it's not worth it, well, then all the better for those of us who are willing to give it a go.

It's not Indo or Hawaii. It depends on what your are used to. The water is clearer, however, than just about anywhere else. Do it.

Bahamas Air - I read on a couple sites that Bahamas Air will not fly surfboards as of 9/2008. When I spoke to a Customer Service agent, she said they did fly surfboards but it took me a while to exlpain to her what a surfboard was. Anybody have any info?
