Hello there! yes there is indeed surf in Bermuda!! I've lived in Bermuda just about all my life  and been surfing here for almost 10 yrs now. Surf can be really good or shit depending on swell and wind conditions. Word of advice: know where to go and when and you'll score! Any more questions?

Local, any surf there in Nov? We came last year for the Rugby World Cup classic, and are coming again same time this year. Is it worth trekking a board there?

James, yes November has proved to be a pretty good month in the past. If you bring along a board I couldn't garantee that you'd get a lots of waves since surf is quite inconsistent and swells are short lived, however depending on how long you stay and how willingly eager you are to surf bring along your board anyway and you may just get lucky!

How consistent or inconsistent is it?  Average surfable days 150 or more?  Also, how big does it get at some of the better spots?  South or north side more consistent?

Thanks.

Consistency...hmmmm a rather tough one! to make it simple try to avoid coming during the months of May-July. these are the worst months for surf and during this time most of us take a surf trip elsewhere. Best season is from Aug-Nov AKA our hurricane season. As for our north and south breaks...south shore can bring us surf year round including winter and north shore works best in winter or early spring however these north facing reefbreaks require boat access as they are isolated from main island. El ninio winters have brough us great surf in the past. Good Luck!!! :)

Size And Consistency!

I probably would get to surf about a dozen times on an average month...so we're probably talking about anything from wasit high surf to about head high.There are times however when we can go like 2 months without much at all to even ride. Yes generally speaking early summer months are the worst. Choose late summer or fall if you want to surf the good stuff. During this time we could get weeks of much more consistent southeast-southwest surf ranging in the 4-8 ft+ range due to hurricanes passing nearby. Last hurricane season was about an average one. Biggest surf was in Sept 10ft swells

yo have you been out to the north in the winter?  I bet you it would be gnarley out there.  problem would be the breeze i imagine.  i am from there and i think i am going to get into windsurfing so i can do both, because i feel the whole winter time it is blowin pretty hard out of the north/northwest.  you have a summer break?  mid ocean?  what type of board you riding?  where were you surfing recently?  also rumour of hungry bay break?  i guess when we get a hurricane swell the south shore sets off, including hore shoe and sonesta.
cool let me
i am very curious about the best places for the diff. swells

Hungry bay (or simply 'the bay') is your best bet as far as consistancy goes...almost always breaking if there's any kind of swell in the water - mid tide is best. not much space, though and it's a short wave. It's where everyone starts from, however; from there you may find out about the other, better breaks.
