St. Croix

If your on the East Coast and are looking for a relatively quick getaway to a nice quiet tropical island than you should look into St. Croix in the Virgin Islands.  

Because of its natural beauty St. Croix has always been a top destination for scuba divers and snorkeling, this is what also makes it a great SUP trip.  

Brian showing how its done.

There wasn't any waves while I was there but St. Croix does get decent swell throughout the year.  Like many Caribbean Islands, it is very touch and go and timing is everything.  Most of the breaks here are reef and many extremely shallow.  Resulting in fast hollow barreling waves when its on.  The great thing about it here is that even if its flat there is a lot of exploring to be done. 

Rent or bring snorkeling gear, you won't be disappointed.  The island is also a great spot to get scuba certified.

The sweetest baby on the island, Caila, future water woman!  Next stop CA!

If you do visit, make sure you head to the rainforest.  Stop in at Mt. Pellier and go to the jungle bar.  Grab a beer and make sure to get one for the pigs!  

Don't worry! there non alcoholic!
