 Additional Information

The winter north swells make good surf all along the west coast. This point is south west, so the wave forms a powerful bowl, usually glassy and hollow.

Atmosphere

This is a very quiet spot. I don't live in Barbados anymore but when I go back it's the spot I look forward too. I have detected slight localism but nothing serious.
