Surf trip description:

 

THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE ESCAPING THE FREEZING COLD OF THE UK IN FEBRUARY TO SURF IN BAGGIES AND A RASHVEST.  WELCOME TO BARBADOS!!!!!

IN FEB 2005 I ESCAPED TO BARBADOS WITH MY WIFE DAWN, AND OUR FRIENDS KAREN, BRYAN AND THEIR DAUGHTERS.  WE SCORED SANDY LANE OVER HEAD AND GLASSY CLEAN FOR 3 DAYS SOLID AND SURFED FREIGHTS (HEADHIGH AND GLASSY), SOUTHPOINT (OVERHEAD AND CLEAN), BRANDONS (CHEST HIGH AND LUMPY) AND MAYCOCKS (CHEST HIGH AND CLEAN).  WE WERE LUCKY TO CATCH A 2 WEEK PERIOD OF SURF OF VARYING STANDARDS BUT AT LEAST SURF EVERYDAY.

WE STAYED ABOUT 10 MINUTES WALK SOUTH OF SANDY LANE, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE A GOOD PLACE TO EXPLORE FROM. ALTHOUGH LUCKY WITH THE SWELL THE WEST COAST PRODUCES EXCELLENT SURF CONDITIONS WHEN WORKING.  THE SOUTH COAST APPEARS TO GET BLOWN OUT VERY EASILY AND ALTHOUGH I SURFED SOUPBOWLS IN 2001 I HAVE NEVER SEEN CONDITIONS BETTER THAN POOR TO TOTAL RUBBISH.  THAT SAID THE PHOTOS ON THIS WEBSITE DO HIGHLIGHT THE FACT THAT EVERY BREAK HAS ITS DAY.

I WOULD RECOMMEND BARBADOS AS A SURF TRIP, BUT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF CASH AS EVERYTHING IS MUCHO EXPENSIVE.

P.S. - IF YOU DON'T LIKE AN AUDIENCE WHEN YOU SURF DON'T SURF SANDY LANE, AS ALL AND SUNDRY SIT AND WATCH YOU'RE EVERY MISTAKE!
