hmmm - ok, so I've got a question... it looks like there's a really good chance of me going to the island for a week vacation, and I would really like to learn how to surf. Know of anybody who would be willing to teach or a place I could go to??? Thanks, Ani =)
No Surf - I've been living here for just over 3 years, and The breaks are mushy,small, inconsistant and weak. There are terrible iron shore and reef. Not worth a trip or risking a board with the travel airlines.
Cayman Surf - There are a couple of breaks but they depend on weather. Mostly on the South coast and are fairly inconsistent.
Your best bet for waves is Dec/Jan/Feb - look for the fronts that come through. Better bet to bring your scuba gear...
Coming to visit, hope to find surf! - My wife and I are coming to Grand Cayman for a friend's wedding the first half of December. We hope to find some surf. Bringing boards just in case. A break from the frigid waters of northern Oregon will be nice! Any hints/suggestions?

Plenty of surfers in Cayman - Just an update as I notice no one has posted here since 2005. The surf population here has grown steadily over the years and if there is surf at South Sound there will be surfers. A crowd of 10-20 is standard in the afternoons after work and on weekends but during the week it is usually empty or just 2 or 3 people in the water most of the day. As I am writing this post ( 11 am March 5th 2007)there is no one in the water and the surf is shoulder high with overhead sets coming through every 10 to 15 minutes, the wind is offshore,and the set waves are giving some nice peeling lefts 50-100 yds long and some 50 yd rights. The sky is partly sunny with air at about 84F and water at about 79F.Did I mention that the water is a beautiful clear blue? South Sound is not the best break in the world (and not even the best on the island MC and BB on the right days are mini-Indos)but it is a fun break with decent quality and consistency. Visitors are welcome but don't bring any attitude.Respect!

Hmmm... - No surf huh. Should I bring my skateboard instead? Okay, how about both. Can't wait to drive around the island 3000 times too find a break. Maybe it's not world class but if there are waves I will find them.
surf? - my aunt lives down here and tells me there no surf and from this site i learn there is whats the best time of year u guys get swell?
south sound - there's been too much waiting around in the last two months for surf... anonymous (21 feb), there's more than 2 surfable breaks on the island? pls enlighten me... i'm dying here.
chippy - i feel that south sound is a bad surf spot there are better surf spots on the island which i can not metion but other that that. Mariners crew rules the waters in the Cayman islands.
brett - SS surf - hey, checking in from Cayman...those pics of South sound were a really good day, its usually not that good...dont publicise cayman too much, dont want it getting anymore crowded ;)
