hulls better than botany - i was there in march 2008 and it was solid 30foot barrels for 3 days then it dropped out to like 15to 25 then like 8to 12 then small but every wave was a barrel. when it was 30 feet high it was 1200 yards off the beach!

botany bay - you are right.was vacationing in st thomas for surf. the only place i could surf without being hassled and chased from the break was hull bay,which is just a big mushy wave.almost got beaten up at caret and then got robbed at botany.what a trip.

surfnben - You must be compensating for something...hmm...If you keep acting like a jerk you will draw attention that you dont want, i.e. police, media, etc. I suggest you just let people surf...if they dont drop in on you...who cares? You would act differently if you were looking for the path to trestles...you rip on the people who visit St T, but without them, you'd be homeless, trying to move stateside...get an education, then talk trash
