So my cousin is getting married 4 of July weekend. The wedding is in the Barbados. I never talk to my family here, but maybe I can make a surf trip out of it. Is there even surf in the Barbados? Has anyone been?
July is probably the WORST month for waved in 'Dos unless you get an errant hurricane that takes a Southerly dip as it comes of the African coast. But there's plenty to do other than surfing as well.
I have to ask.... You really wanted to know if there are ANY waves in 'Dos? Ke11y lists Soup Bowl in his top 5 waves.....
With the tradewinds there, the south coast is almost always rideable with something. As said above, July isn't the best month, but you can find waves somewhere. It's a small island, you can drive around the whole thing in about 3 hours. Rent a car and find some surf!
Soup Bowl has waves a lot, but conditions are almost always subpar because of the trades. I was in Barbados in Feb and there were waves in the chest-head range every day on the south coast. Soup Bowl was big and nasty...I wasn't messing with it.
Is there surf in Barbados? Do Bear's **** in the woods?
Heck ya, there is surf... Its best in the winter or later in the summer, when the tropics are firing, but either way Barbados is a small island with huge exposure to swells from the NW, N, NE, E, SE, and S. Bring a board, or plan on renting a board, as you will definitely find waves in Barbados.
