 Additional Information

To check it out you walk out along the edge of the bay on the large pebble rocks till you round the point. Don't paddle out from there! Paddle out from the inside Bay beach or the little pier (if they still let you). There is a bowl at the takeoff spot, so take off at the peak or behind it, and bottom turn strait back up into the pocket & tuck. If it's over head you'll have to pump it to make it out. When it's breaking at its max, you can take off twice as far back, right in front of the cliff, and then barrel right through the bowl section!

Atmosphere

I surfed it through the late '70s & early '80s when it wasn't that well known. Today you can google it and get plenty of information. Definitely one of the best wave I've surfed in the world.

General

It breaks about 30 to 40 yards off the dry rocks on the shoreline. A great vantage point to take photos, just be careful of larger set waves-that could ruin the photographer whole day.

size of last march swell. - i was in tortola last march during that monster swell. i was surfing uncrowded smugglers cove during a transworld photoshoot, but heard that Cane garden was going off, and heard claims of 15ft faces, is this true? has it ever gotten bigger than that swell?

Cane Garden Bay Surfing - I've lived in Little Apple Bay for more than 15 years and have never seen any surf in Cane Garden Bay worth more than the effort of a three year old. The Bay is a well known mooring harbor and you would be much better off at Campoons Bay in front of the Shack. Nov/Dec surf is awesome with 8-10 swells.
