Surf in Jamaica during June

« on: January 26 2005 10:01:00 »

Has anyone surfed in Jamaica during the summer months? We are trying to find a destination for begineer to intermediate surfers and lack of crowds. Considered Central America, but may be too big and overcrowed.

Jamaica (Kingston around to Port Antonio) has surf all year. In the summer, the strong trades kick up some good windswell that can turn glassy the next morning before the trades pick up again. Boston Bay is excellent for beginners.

The Zoo is totally blown out as you stated. There are other spots that were formed as a result of the storm. BTW... The Jamaican Surf team is surfing in Hunnington Beach this 8-16 Oct at the ISA youth competition. They did well today.

I'll be at Half Moon Bay in June and am curious if there will be anyplace reasonably nearby to get some first-timer surfing in. Any help?

How long will you be in Jamaica?  Have you learned whether any good surfing can be had where you'll be.  I've just started looking into a trip to Jamaica.  Have you found cheap hotels/hostels?  Any interest in joining up (I'm a dude by the way)?  I've surfed 4-5 days before while living in Costa Rica, but am definitely still a beginner.  Email me if you'd be interested in coordinating our trips.  Are you looking at any other locations or are you set on Jamaica?

I am staying in Ocho Rios at the end of this week.  Is there any good spot around that area and a place to rent a board.
