The Apple Bay surf break is over a reef with water so clean you could drink it, if not for the salt. Apple Bay holds up in 8-10 foot ground swells real nice. It features multiple take off points breaking left and right.
Winter storms in the northeast bring the ground swells to the Caribbean. The surf is so predictable; a noreastern goes off the Carolina coast and heads north, 3 days later the swell arrives on the north shore of Tortola. Get on the 6:30 flight at JFK and be in the water by 3 o’clock for a wonderful 2 hour, warm water session.
Apple Bay holds a pretty big wave, 10 foot face easy. On the epic big days, it is time to look at Cane Garden Bay. Less than a 20 minute ride to surf one of the 10 best waves in the world. It does not go off much, but when it does, it offers a 200 yard freight train right.
On the east side of the island is Josiah’s Bay, a beach break with a double personality; the right side of the beach is a great place to learn with some ripping rights to the center for the seasoned surfer.
