Ordinarily surfing is not available in Antigua. I happen to live in an area where surfing is a big focus. We travel and while in Antigua a few years back, I chatted with a fellow who loved when hurricanes came up the northeast coast. Apparently the swells actually reached way down to Antigua, making decent surf. In our area, tropical storms can make choppy surf but sometimes big, fun surf. My question was legitimate. I'd like to know how tropical storms ordinarily affect surfing around the island of Antigua. Since it's a small island I'm wondering if, when a tropical storm comes by, does it overtake the island thus making it (unfortunately) not a surf opportunity or can it actually be organized such that the waves are great. ...I'm sorry I offended you with this question.
As with regards to "bombardment", I am simply supplying news articles that may be of interest to travelers. Please feel free to skip any of my postings as they apparently make you cranky.
