Information about the Picket Fence Surf forecast

The above surf forecast table for Picket Fence provides essential information for determining whether the surfing conditions will be good over the next 7 days. A general guide to surfing at Picket Fence can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu. Our Picket Fence surf forecast is unique since it includes wave energy (power) that defines the real feel of the surf rather than just the height or the period. If you surf the same spot (Picket Fence) regularly then make a mental note of the wave energy from the surf forecast table each time you go. Very soon you may start to choose your surf days based on the wave energy alone combined with our forecast of favourable offshore wind conditions. Our star ratings will help here and of course you will also find the usual wave height and period predictions on our surf forecasts as well as a full break down of the swell components under our advanced users option (to reveal that, click the little Einstein character under the tide times).

Further information to help with frequently asked questions about our surf forecast for Picket Fence may be found under the help tab on the top menu and also by moving your mouse over the question marks on the surf forecast table itself. Please always bear in mind that the forecast is for near-shore open water and local factors at each surf break influence the actual breaking wave height, such as the beach / reef profile, water depths offshore and shelter.

Are you planning a holiday in Saint Barthélemy? If you are looking for accommodation near Picket Fence, camping, hotels and holiday cottages in Saint Barthélemy, consider staying in Gustavia which is 3 km (2 miles) away. Other places in and around Saint Barthélemy where you can find information about places to rent, and car hire include Philipsburg which is 31 km (19 miles) away, Marigot, The Valley and Basseterre.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
