Ship In BayEdit Spot
Really a fun wave.
Fun break. Beautiful area and view from the line-up. Usually you will have all to your self. If any of the local surfers do come out be friendly and they will be too. Who knows they may show you some of the secret spots. You are all alone out there with only the odd car passing and they don't stop or care so if you do create a problem with someone in the water don't be surprised if they burn your car or start to shoot guns at you. ST Vincent can be a bit wild. If its clean sit on the outside but if its blown outside by the point sit inside where the clip gets high and catch the reforming wave there. Thats the best wave. If its breaking across the bay, the swell is too north and you can paddle all day and not catch a wave.
The best wave is middle where the point starts to get high and block the wind to the inside. This middle to inside can be fast and wall up. In clean conditions outside connects and its a great wave all the way to the beach. Because the clean lots of fish there are some big tiger sharks that come into the bay sometimes and can be a bit of an issue so go ashore if you see one. The black tip reef sharks are not so much of a problem and we usually don't go in for those.
Park under the trees by the sea side of the road. Lock your car and don't leave anything in sight. just south of the fishing boats is a path down the bank to the beach. you can paddle out or walk out to the point and jump off if you know here to jump from. Outside has a big rock about 2 feet below the surface so don't go over the falls head first.
