James Point in Eleuthera is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the north. A choice of left and right reefs. Best around mid tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of urchins, rocks, sharks and coral.
