In season (oct-August) the 14 mile long island boasts reliable surf and trade winds splitting North and South shores into surfing and windsurfing paradise. Low key in Tourism the island has the unspoilt flavor of the Caribbean with its warm waters and lives up to its slogan ‘Natures best kept secrets”.

Laid back but driving forward ISLAND SURF AND SAIL caters to the soul of water sports enthusiasts providing professional instruction and coaching in windsurfing, surfing, kayaking and kite boarding. Its location, mid island, at Nanny Cay resort boasts a natural lagoon with access to Francis Drake Channel.

If visitors are traveling the islands SURF AND SAIL will provide equipment to yachts for day or week rental. The operation provides up to date equipment and boasts the only fixed Skateboard Park in the islands on the beach. From eco tours to powerboat excursions or skating, on or off the water these guys are promoting extreme sports in a positive safe environment.

In 2004- 2005 the Shak at Nanny Cay will continue its drive for the youth market with an increase in school windsurf and surf programmes running 3 of its successful u16 freestyle meets at Nanny Cay of which its first trial had 22 kids enter with 40 proud onlookers enjoying a bbq on the beach. Moving further up to hardcore the shak initiated Tortolas first superx challenges, a rapid growing discipline in windsurfing where competitors race on a moto cross style track for 20 mins scored on the highest and most radical jumps. And for the old guard the BVI spring regatta 3 day windsurfing formula series in April 05.

Super x series will run 3 seasonal series in 2005 based on winds, with a new hangout at Nanny Cay spectators see up to 20 competitors thrash it out 100 meters offshore. In the near future the shak will combine these events to run 3 extreme sports days with skateboarding, windsurfing races and kite surfing demos at Nanny Cay with bbq promoting.
