- Hi,
my name is jacky and i come as au pair to martinique. And i want to surf in martinique but I want to buy a surfboard. because if you want to take your own surfboard with you, you have to pay 54 €. if you know any surfshop in matinique where I can buy an old surfboard from, another surfer, i would be very happy for some informations. Also I want to ask you about the bus. I want to travel from fort de france to the surfspots in the south of martinique(beachbreak) and my question is, is it easy to find a bus(in the weekend)? Cause there is only the family in martinique, i know. do you know any other surfers in matinique, perhaps any girls from fort the france? bye Jacky

Hello Dub - Well I've been living here for almost 2 years. surfing is great if you have time during the week because there is less people and more chance to be at the right place at the right time. I surf most weekends and always found a wave (min 2-3 feet in the worst situation and 3 meters barrels when it rocks - Just have to known the place). Life is just about the same as in france except for a 20% cost increase 'cause everything but Rhum is imported) Cheap place: yes but not easy to find. Work: there is a black market otherwise must have a french work permit. Locals: cool and safe but there are assholes everywhere in this world...Just don't leave your backpack on the beach and surf for 2 hours (fine most of the time but why take a chance?). Anyway, helps a lot to speak french or known someone sur place. Definetely worth it for 1-2 years. Wish you luck!
Philippe.


In response to Dub
I'd like to leave in martinique to work and surf for a year so if someone did it before could you give me infomations about the best places to go, the cost of the life, how the locals and people are over there, is it easy to found a cheap place to live ... Thanks a lot and I hope you've got better conditions than ours here in normandy

Tartane - I ride Tartane in October, I came from France and it's really the most beautiful spot I've never seen ! The landscapes is amazing and the waves are really fantastic ! To ride this spot is a real pleasure !!!!

complementary information - in martinique swell is mainly from north and north-east.
Height waves : from 3 to 9 feet (especially at this season, one of the best in the year).
Winter (from october to march )is the good season but wind could be strong (10 to 25 knots).
Locals could be a little bit agressive, especially bodyboarders.
Life is expensive but accomodation are not so expensive, even close to spots in the tartane area (around 40us dollars a night or 250 us a week)
Don't forget : windsurfing coul be a great experience especially in GRAND RIVIERE with 20knots, 6 to 10feet waves (right)and a wilderness area. A rear hole in the wall but great!!!!!
