Resort Guide: Barbados, Barbados


Barbados is a wonderful place to visit. It has a cruisey, laid back and friendly atmosphere. The windsurfing is great, all be it in slightly lighter airs. It has great waves for improving your wave riding and is a mellow place for freeriding or freestyle. If you are into your surfing then Barbados also offers great, clean waves.

Whether you want a relaxed, chilled out windsurf trip or want a more hectic time hitting the night life every night, Barbados has it all. The island is great to explore with plenty of tourist trails to follow. What’s more if the wind is light there is always surf to be found and if you don’t surf then its time to get surfing lessons booked with one of the local instructors.
