Long Bay Surf Guide

Long Bay in Tortola is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. Offshore winds are from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north. There are left and right breaking reefs. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks,reef,urchins,jellyfish and sharks.
