Just wondering if there is any surf in Labadee, or close by?  Will be stopping by during a cruise.

Yes but the cruise ships wont let you go to the real spot.

Three coves down.

A left point reef break named ginsus for its sharp inside section.

When you get there ask for Erich Pond.  He is the Docmaster there.  Maybe he can sneak you out.

Come over and you will see.

There are plenty of uncrowded waves.

Many places to explore.

Come if you have a real thirst for prestine spots.

I assume you live around Cap. Have you heard of any breaks on Ile de la Tortue?

Guys Haiti is as safe as anywhere else in latin america.

As for surf on the north coast, it is generated by cold fronts, and or stiff trade winds.

The season is usualy from september to april.

As for places to stay.

Check out cormier plage.

If not contact me and I will set things up for you.

Russel if at all possible can you send me your e-mail. I'd like to talk about some of the finer details about suring down in Jacmel.
