North-facing breaks turn on this time of year throughout the Bahamian chain of islands. As already seen and felt last month, winter, if not already here, is definitely in the mail. When ridges of low pressure move off of Cape Hatteras or south of it, breaks can really turn on. Fickle breaks like Egg Island, Eleuthera and Love Beach, New Providence could turn on this month.
Heady surfers with a map and compass can also find spots that, even when the wind is howling from the North, have offshore breezes. Most of these spots need a sizeable north swell to break and November can deliver that with a number of overhead days. Like October, be ready to strike when the winds turn favorable at your break as they probably won’t stay that way for long.
Contributor’s note: Four-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore, of Australia, spent a few weeks in Eleuthera this fall surfing and working out. Gilmore wowed locals with her top-to-bottom attack and dazzling smile. Good luck on tour next year Steph!
