Deep water swells come out of really deep water and hit a 3ft deep shelf. Extremely fast and hollow wave.
Never gone so fast or been so deep in barrels. Only surfed by alone, which is a little sketchy with the tiger sharks around.

no worries about overcrowding there - like it says in the wave profile " IT RARELY WORKS! "fort bay is in the south west corner of the island - any westerly quadrant swell is a rare occurence. you have to be lucky to get it good!hurricane season would be your best bet. then again, that will most likely only give you 1 or 2 days of swell per storm..... the storm also has to move through the carribean instead of the atlantic.there are far more gems in the carib that go off with more frequency!
