Surfing in Ocho Rios

My husband really wants to learn how to surf in Jamaica. We are staying at Ocho Rios at the resort called Sunset Jamaica Grande, can anyone recommend where he can surf in and around the area. He's willing to take a bus ride anywhere in Jamaica.

they surf in Port Antonio area... Boston Bay specifically has some guys who give lessons.... that's about a 3 to 3.5 hour drive away... would probably need a private transfer to do this trek...

that's the only place i personally know of on the island... there maybe some other options on the south coast, but i can't say where?

Other than parts of Portland parish (East coast), I have never seen waves large enough to surf in Jamaica. The entire island is pretty well reef-protected...hence the calmer waters for swimming.
