This is the first spot in tortola to go bad. So if there is crowdes every where else this is the place to go.
Its good for beginners and it has a surf rental in case you didnt bring a board. Its a nice familly beach and has a bar and restaurant. Be sure to bring an umbrella because the sun is hot.
This is a fun and relaxed wave good for longboarding or with a fun shape. Its a really great wave.

Awsome. chill spot - This has to be one of the most fun spots I have been too. Came up on the boat one weekend about 2 years ago, me and my buddy ripped it all day. Super chill, a few locals out, one of them surfing in a kayak and another on a lifeguard rescue board. Most fun I have probably had in one day of surfing. Keep it cool! and don't trash this place. It really is special

hi friends - I plan to spend a couple of weeks or months in the caribeen (hmmmm, goes down like honey....), starting in november 2007. BVI sounds lovely to me! just a litte worried about the costs of living. is it possible to camp on the beach? or are there just expensive honey-moon-suites all over? thank you for helping me out. greez

For real! - Yo, you guys think that the picture is nice, its all the more better in real life, and yes it is very true, when Josiahs is like this, you're bound to get other spots which are even beter, take Cane Garden Bay for example, just look at those pictures! Everone is confused about this whole "what are the locals like?" thing, but the truth is they like to meet people so if you are cool to them, you might actually end up having an excellent time insted of bitching to wannasurf about how the locals were mean... Not accusing anyone but it happenes all the time.
