    Caribbean will probably be flat too that time, unless there's some tropical action. Wait and book last minute to increase your odds.

Lauderdale both have tons of direct flights to all places south. I'm Jonesing for some stoke after the spring we had and then now nothing.

    Dude, first of all, lately every third day somebody axs where they should go on a trip. Then people jump to respond because Swellinfo community participation threads are a big hit, and..........and it's the same couple of places that get suggested. Puerto Rico and Costa Rica. Everytime.

    I disagree. It is kind of sheepish when someone axs aboot a trip and the same two or three locations are given. Puerto Rico........Costa Rica.....Barbados..........and maybe a Nicaragua thrown in for good measure.

    If there's going to be a new "Where should I go" thread every other day, lets have y'all get creative with the locations.

    And why is all aboot weather? It should be aboot waves. You can surf in 76 degree water in Jersey....sometimes. Sometimes you can even see a few feet under the water's surface. Hey, what's wrong with green/brown camoflauge water color? Actually, I saw a "Stronger Than the Storm" commercial and, WOW, you should have see how blue New Jersey's water was. Amazing.

    And it's not always ice cold in Nueve Yersey. You feel better after a cold water session. That's a scientific fact.

    Thanks. All spots down south (islands) are flat like up here in the summer? I thought I saw somewhere that Costa and others still had some action, and that Peru is all year long.

    Go to the SPACIFIC side of Costa. So actually you should go to Central America. You friggin gringo. You know south of that equator it's almost winter and the real oceans got it going on. Seas are gay(as in happy), oceans are mean and that's where the cool kids go.

    But there's plenty of spots that are not crowded that are way better than your home break. If you have a car, you can score waves every day without a crowd.

    But I still like Barbados better.
    True that, I haven't been to Barbados yet, but it's on the list, gotta convince the wife it'll be fun... You're right though, if you know the spots you can find an uncrowded break that's firing. Even Maria's has days where it's not too bad but you gotta get there early. I scored Maria's DP by myself on my Birthday, best present ever, but I also had to share it with about 100 people the day before, just depends...
