Atmosphere

General

Never gone so fast or been so deep in barrels. Only surfed by alone, which is a little sketchy with the tiger sharks around.

no worries about overcrowding there - like it says in the wave profile " IT RARELY WORKS! "fort bay is in the south west corner of the island - any westerly quadrant swell is a rare occurence. you have to be lucky to get it good!hurricane season would be your best bet. then again, that will most likely only give you 1 or 2 days of swell per storm..... the storm also has to move through the carribean instead of the atlantic.there are far more gems in the carib that go off with more frequency!

Are you nuts! - Erase this as quickly as you can. Dude, if that break was were i live i wouldn't tell anyone. You need a surfing partner, let me know i am half an hour flight. Delete this photos before half the eastern US jumps a plane and overcrouds this! jamenz@hotmail.com
