i was on the island for two weeks in july, i surfed one time (my first time) at Boston Beach near Port Antonio. Its an incredable relaxed beach, the locals are great and the only place to rent boards in Jamaica. Locals told me waves could be 20 ft high though when i was there, i surfed a meager 3 ft. Other possible places would be Long Bay (near Boston Beach) and the Zoo which is near Kingston. There are more places but they are difficult to find and no rental at the spot. About the money: its always possible to pay less they ask for if you say you havnt got much money and so on. Mail me if you have more questions

Is it worth bringing a board over with you if you stay for about 6 months, or are there boards available on the island?

I am considering a job there.

I surfed in Jamaica for 3 weeks.  Had some cranking rights and lefts but not too big, probably 4 foot max and all to myself.  Check out Woney's surf shack about 20 minutes out of Port Antonio.  He runs a small hut/accommodation with reasonable prices, if you stay at his shack then it is possible you will have free access to surfboards.  Though I would recommend taking your own as he may not have one that suits you.  The accomodation is situated a stone throw away from the beach.  You will get to meet lots of very cool Rasta Men as Woney is a Rasta himself.  The reason they call him Woney is because he's only got one arm, a true character and he will look after you.
