Among all the other water sports, Guadeloupe offers several surf spots. Surfers and Body surfers can practise their favorite sport all around the year.

The surf season lasts from October until May, but the other months can offer ideal conditions too. The waves break on coral, lava or rock reefs. In winter they'll be of 1,5m to 2,5m. The Trade Winds, blowing nearly the whole year, are more intense in spring/summer, where you'll meet swell of 1m to 2m. The small height difference between the tides allows surfing the same spot all day long.
During hurricane season (September and October), experienced surfers will enjoy the exceptional swell following or preceeding hurricanes arising in the Caribbean!
