general information

Little Apple Bay aka Capoon's Bay is located at the eastern end of Tortola Island and faces northeast. As such it is the most consistent spot on the island, open to any swell with north in it, but really works well in a mid sized northwester. The wave breaks over a reef infront of the Bomba Shack, infamous for it's Full Moon Shroom parties. This spot can also be known as Bomba's.

The wave is an A-frame peak offering up fun rights and lefts sutiable for all levels of surfers when small. As the size increases, so does the difficultly. Though the main hazard for surfers here are those damn shrooms!
