On Eleuthera. Really close (10 Min) to the Governor's harbour Airport. Bring a chart or map and drive north until you find road going to the ocean through a little settlement. Ask a local, 4x4 preferred if you want to drive all the way out (lots of sugar sand).

The "Real" James Point - From www.MystoSurf.com (Surf Quest Adventures):Most people today have no clue where the "real" James Point break is. You'll find that most surfers paddle out in front of the rocks that are located just to the left (north) of where the beach access road ends (i.e.; the road that leads in around northern end of the marsh pond that ends on the northern end of the bay). BUT this isn't the true "James Point" break. The real spot is located around the bay on the other side (on the south tip, where the outer reef begins which extends down along and towards south Eleuthera). It's a Right Hander that breaks on an outer reef (not the wave that breaks close to shore near the northern bay end of the bay; and its definitely not the wave breaking right smack in the middle of the bay).We first surfed this spot way back in 1981, when NOBODY else would dream go paddling out. It was truly an awesome experience - being one of the first to have pioneered this spot way back - though I suspect there were probably other nomad surfers who surfed it even before us).This you should know though, the spot can give you an awkward or freaky sensation at times, as "unexpected" quests can show up uninvited, who you'd prefer to never see in the line-up. I'm talking about the true locals, sharks, and some big ones at that. So stay aware and keep your eyes open if you decide to put in the time to walk around the bay to paddle out. All in all though, this wave can handle some big stuff! We've seen it going off well over 20', with waves rolling through that would make most people stain their undies if they ever faced some of the sizable waves that break here!

James Piont is good - I surf James Point in February. Nice head- high swell coming in. The right is pretty good and I would recommend this wave. But the drive getting there is a pain.

Stay Away - If you're a sandbar, ripper guy, and surf mostly waist high crud, then this place ain't for you. Do us all a favor and surf Surfers Beach Rights, at night!!! Better yet, go hang at Elvina's and drink yourself silly...Thanks for paying attention!
