St. Maarten, N.A.
Visit the Pt. Blanche Surf Club page!
Surfing conditions updated here for the bay at Pt. Blanche.
Short board surfing is best for this small bay.
Surf's Up (then it dies down) Surf has calmed down but it can kick up in the mid-afternoon. Random big waves from crazy surge. But lots of churned up seaweed is in the bay and the beach is full of rocks. Other than that - go for it!
So 50/50 on what you will find.
The bay has more sea grass. The beach is mostly rocky ... but there's some sand that comes and goes. There's a bunch of large rocks in the shallow part of the bay that weren't there a month ago. They are on the west half of the bay and can be a hazard when jumping off a board.

Guana Bay - sad to report the Cantina has closed.

More about the seaweed problem here.

Stay tuned....

Recent update on the condition of the bottom of the bay:
-- no info right now.
The east side of the bay has sea urchins so watch your step.

So far no lionfish have been spotted on this side of St. Maarten.
Any news about that will be reported here.
The first aid for their sting is to apply heat to the area (on your way to the emergency room).

Pt. Blanche Bay pelican report
Pelicans are somewhere else.
