Duppies - Love this place.! I have been surfing in Barbados on & off since 2001 & had scored perfect Tropicana, big Soupbowls but never Duppies, finally last November I checked it in the late afternoon & it was perfect, long walls & 6ft+ sets rolling in with not a breath of wind & only two guys out. By the time I got down to the tiny beach/cove they were coming in, so sucked up the courage & paddled out alone, fortunatly not for long as I was soon joined by two other surfers (cant lie to you I was relived!) as I knew a little bit about this spots reputation... anyway short story long... scored super clean long walls that just popped up out of an otherwise flat ocean, the odd 8ft face every now & then with a monster paddle back up the coast after you kick out. Dont know about Bulls/Tigers but this place is very special, weirdly a lot of locals steer clear of it.... maybe they know something I dont????

duppies for dumbies - not sure who your confidant in barbados is but i would like to clear up the shark story. first of all there is no shark story - no one was bitten or mangled - complete rumour. in regards to the chicken dumping - it does happen and there are sharks there but I have never seen one other than while diving and i have been on or around the water for twenty five years. also waves are almost never better in the morning regardless of the tide - not sure why its just what god made it to be. Finally we are always happy to see other surfers on island and in the surf and welcome you back - last time i was in Maui a guy was ripped off his windsurfer and pulled under by a tiger shark at sprecks in front of about ten people and i personally witnessed approx ten tigers launching themselves on the beach at BIG BEACH tearing parts of a beached whale off and closing the water there for three days.
