it appears that good luck and hard work do pay off...u see I'm a cold Canadian, who has been given the opportunity to relocate to sunny and warm turks and caicos islands for a while....

Wondering if anyone has been, and if it's going to be possible to get a pull somewhere?

Hmmm I don't know, never been either but we are planning our next vacation and Turks & Caicos is one of the destinations we are looking at. Would be awesome if you could wakeboard there to.

Some friends of ours were considering going there for a job (he is in commercial refrigeration), but decided not to due to their kids. I guess they only have to go to school till 8th grade, and they have one son in high school.
All I know is that the Dr. I work for has been there on vacation and loves it. I can't ever seem to remember the name and always call it "Taco's and Chips"!
Have fun!

I have been and there are some sweet spots to ride on the south side of Provodencials.Good luck finding a boat to pull you.You will have an awesome time.The water and sand are incredible.No crime.Roads are really bad.We rented a car for a day to see the whole island which is fun.Caicos cafe is the best place to eat and reasonable!We stayed at the Sands on Grace Bay.The Stars are killer there too.Enjoy

As far as I know its not a big surf spot.NO resorts I saw had barriers.Grace bay which is beautiful and where most of the resorts and hotels are at,is protected by a reef a mile out.That kills the swell on the beach.Some of the best diving in the WORLD and snorkeling is great to.Great place just to chill.

St.Marteen has a wakeboarding school and you can ride by the 1/2 hour.They are using an X Star this year I believe.
