Waiting - Parents new job at Abaco Beach Resort has me waxing my board and staring at a calendar. Heading down in July what spots should I hit up while I'm in town, and can you walk everywhere?

Japans (among MANY other names) - Japans, Bays, Hamburgers... it's got tons of names. Japans is the most used although some people still refuse to call it by Japans. SUPER fun wave, a straighfooters dream. The paddle out is extremely easy and you can easily get barreled 9/10 waves on a good day here. When it's breaking the best you can take off, get tubed come out do a cutty then anything else you want off of the rampy section. Even when it's tiny the wave is so curvy that you won't ever hop here. Sketchy when crowded though, and that happens with around 5 people, so please be courteous of the locals when you see them out!
