Awesome!! - The best wave on the island is a rivermouth just outside of Roseau called Layou. The conditions have to be just right for it to break, consequently once - twice a year is exceptionally lucky, but when you catch it just right, the wave is an a-frame barrel that seems to come out of nowhere due to the deeper water on the outside. Like I said, it is rare but well worth the trek if you happen to catch it. The most consistent wave on the island is a break on the northeast end of the island called L'anse Tortue (pronounced Las Tor-tee). It is a secluded cove with a reef break on the left hand side of a natural channel and a sand bottom beach break that peels off the outcropping cliffs on the right hand side of the channel. The beach is amazing, it is a mixture of white sand and black volcanic sand with palm trees and a miniscule river mouth. In the 10 years that I lived in Dominica, there are only 2 days that I can recall it being absolutely flat at this break. From the beach, the reef break on the outside appears much smaller than it actually is. If youre looking for a solid wave that you can count on as far as consistency and form, this is the spot. As far as sharks go, never spotted any in the entire time there.

Best time to surf Dominica - I was thinking about going to surf Dominica this summer around late July. How is the surf that time of year?
