Surfing in Curaco?

Does anybody know if there is surfing on the island of Curaco?  I'm headed there on a family trip and hoping there are some waves.  Any insight would be cool.

RE: Surfing in Curaco?

yeah - there is surf  Head for playa canoa - north shore - but only in the hurricane winter season do they tend to work. playa canoa usually holds ridable waves where there are waves. it's a small bay on the north shore,... gets a side shore wind most of the time. Fun at 3 ft - can get really good in the hurricane / winter swell season. Usually 50+ m rides when shoulder high -  some small tube sections - but usually just steep sections. can get epic when the right swell hits.

soem other spots here too -  on klein curacao - north and south of the island - needs strong wind or powerfull swell to work - when it goes off! IT GOES OFF!  both wrap around point reefbreaks - shallow, sharp corral - fast - hollow. Not for beginners, and you need good timing to get it to work.
