Sadly this safari was written many years ago and the photos to go with it have been lost in the internet black hole many tides ago:
Montserrat, Trindad and Tobago
Three pictures feature
grey skies, grey sea, grey beach and grey 'dogbones'. No, not the Marina in December,
but Montserrat. The greyness is due to an active volcano belching
ash and smoke, visible from the line - up. I'd borrowed a board
from a longtime US resident who'd only ever used it to wakeboard
(in the 70s). It was a 6' single fin, all red - sweet.
There are no surfers on the island now, though 2 Montserratians
now live on the N Shore and surf when they visit. The break is on
the western side of the island and the wind is constantly offshore.
The day before it was
much bigger, allegedly (story of my life).
The other pictures show some of the
potential of Trindad and Tobago - a point/reef break in Tobago that
was voted no14 in the world (don't name it), and a big wave spot
in Trinidad near the NE tip.
Both work best in the Dec - March season,
though Panic Point also works at other times. Both of these were
taken by Kim.
