Wrong island for that, Eagle Beach would be the best but again it is nothing like St.Martin, West Coast USA....very little wave action.

I have been on Eagle Beach when the waves were alot of fun! It depends on whether there are storms in the area. It's not an every day thing though.

We went to Arashi, Malmok, Palm, Eagle and Baby Beaches. The waves were biggest at Arashi Beach the week we were there. The kids would have fun riding the waves there.

It all depends on the weather out to sea. Most of the time it is pretty flat and even when there is a swell it's not a clean surf able break. Only seen ridable waves in the tourist areas a handful of times over the years. When there is a storm and a break it's great and lots of fun!

As EDS said, it all depends on the weather at sea. On our first visit staying at Bucuti, the waves were quite large; big enough to knock a poor man down and give him a broken leg on his first day of vacation! :( The rest of the week it was mainly calm, but there were a few days of roughness. There were some local kids who would come to the beach to boogie board. The weather during this time was still beautiful, although a bit windier than normal.
