thanks for the info.
I've been going to the USVI since the late 60"s and the attitude of some of the local Cruzans has definitely become more hostile in the last 10 years. That having been said if you use good common sense and are respectful you should be fine. There are a number of breaks on the north shore of St Thomas as well as many breaks on Tortola and other islands in the BVI. Send me a PM and I'll give you more specific info.
