Surf conditions in East Coast & Bathsheba:
Air Temp (°C)
Soup Bowl is the islands most famous waves. It almost always has waves and is great fun and can be epic on its day. When Kelly Slater is in town, this is where you'll find him!
There a few different take off spots which helps to thin out the crowd but the first peak gets busy anyway. It's a powerful, hollow wave so only paddle out if you know what your doing. Respect the locals, they are super friendly if you play the game. Watch out for the urchins on the inside and some of the sharper rocks.
About 10 minutes walk north you will find a much more mellow wave called Sandbank. This is ideal for intermediates.
Another really good reef break but one that tends to be less crowded than Soup Bowl. It can hold a bigger swell and again is super consistent.
When the swell is north head for tent bay which is an epic left hander that very rarely gets crowded. The wave itself breaks in front of the Atlantic hotel.
Next down the line is ragged point which is much more user friendly. This is a fun, mellow beach break best surfed from mid to high tide.
Long beach can have some really fun waves and is a great go to spot on a daily basis. It can close out and be hard to read at times but always worth a mission.
This wave needs a massive north swell to break and therefore is hardly surfed.
The island is only 22kms across so there are plenty of other options to explore further South, West and North.
