Brewers Bay

Edit Spot

Brewers Bay was hit pretty hard by the flooding in October 2010. They didn't affect the wave, but the beach looks a bit hammered as of this posting. Ignore the stuff in the trees, and feast on the wave.
There is a couple of rum bars nearby if you need liquid refreshment.

Punches way above its weight class. Powerful for it's size, but well padded enough under the wave should you eat it. Mostly. The rips make for interesting challenges down the line. Not insumountable, but definately keeps you on your toes. Fast

Additional Info:
Only available on large north swells. Then, it's a nice alternate to a crowded Capoons Bay, or a sketchy take off at Cane Garden Bay. The swell bounces off the west wall of the bay, and refracts to the middle of the bay, about 100 meters offshore


It's the next bay east from Cane Graden Bay. When driving, you've got to go all the way back to the top of the ridge from Cane Garden Bay, then follow the road signs down. It's steep, but passable to 2 wd
