Surfing has a small but dedicated
following in Trinidad. The best beaches for surfing are along the north coast and
northeast coast with the small village of Sans Souci
being considered the best location for surfing. Many of the villagers in San Souci are avid surfers and there are several bed and
breakfast establishments that cater to surfers. Most surfing activity in Trinidad takes
place on the weekend as the distance to the north coast and northeast coast beaches do not
allow people to drive to these beaches after work in the week. Of course if one is on
holiday then you can surf on any day of the week that you like.
For persons wanting to learn to surf there are organisations that provide surfing
lessons and also provide surfing packages for individuals wanting a surfing holiday.
Other Trinidad beaches that are good surfing spots, once the waves are
high enough are:
One of the aspects of Trinidad surfing is that the beaches used by
surfers are usually different from the beaches used by Windsurfers
and Kite Surfers so there is no competition for space
by the different types of surfers.
