    cuba has very little exposure to the atlantic swells with the exception being N swells that bypass South Florida and sneak in there.

    Other than that we are mostly talking about Gulf coast swells for cuba and maybe some hurricane swells in the Caribbean Sea.

    Yeah they average 1 hurricane per year. Late September, October, November and December are the best months for surfing. And it gets good there between those months.

    But has anyone been there?

    I have like a french passport. I went to cuba, but I never went to the beach. I doubt the surfing is any good there.

    why not ask Raul?

    F-Cuba....Hahaha Yeah, i particularly don't care for Cuba either but heard the surf is awesome. I'm only interested in their waves.

    Barbados? Been there 5 times and going back in Feb.

    But seriously back on topic......If no one hear has actually been there to surf. How can you say there is no waves? I have picture proof there is massive waves there. Similar to PR is what i was told.

    And i plan to find out soon.

    Guantanamo

    Ive been surfing in Cuba at the US military base down in Guantanamo. The only surf beach there is called Windmill. Doesnt get that good except when there is a storm or hurricane. Unfortunatly the beach is then closed.
    It was about waist high and peeling for about 25 yards. Supposively that was considered good by thier standards. It was very tide dependent.

    transworld did an article on cuba a year or two ago. said it is mostly windswell they get in there. Looking at a map it looks like the ne portion of the island could get some gswell from the atlantic but it would be shadowed by the bahamas. You can make any wave look good in a photograph, just think of some of the shots you see from the gulf during hurricane season....looks sick but it's flat 90% of the time.

    Cuba would be a sick trip regardless of the waves.
