Soup Bowl Barbados

WHERE

Soup Bowl Is located on the east coast of Barbados in the town of Bathsheba. Soup Bowl is a Right Break better known for its Heavy right Barrels. But Soup Bowl also has great punchy lefts on the smaller days with perfect little barrels and air sections. Soup Bowl Barbados is great for Advanced/Pro Surfers and is in Kelly Slaters top 3 waves in the world list. Soup Bowl is on the Windy Side of the Island but faces slightly more south and the wind tends to be more side shore making the faces of the wave clean even if the outside looks choppy. The current runs North up the Beach and is right where the channel is to paddle out, The beach is beautiful at Soup Bowl and the rocks are very sharp and full of sea urchins so tread lightly. Before you paddle out ask the locals about the line up and stay safe.

WHEN

The best time of year to score great waves at Soup Bowl would be in the Winter months DEC – MAY, however the waves are very consistent in Bathsheba and hurricane swells are also great from  JULY- NOV. Low Tide is usually the best time to Surf at Soup Bowl or Low going High, this gives the wave more power as the swell rolls in over the rock shelf and explodes. Early in the morning is a good time to surf Soup Bowl especially during the week when most Locals are at work.

NEARBY PLACES TO EAT

Soup Bowl Barbados is on the wild more rugged side of the island and is in no way commercialized, no KFC or anything thing of that sort. There is one small convenience store half way up the hill and a couple of rum shops that sell food sometimes… The best bet for food would be Round House Restaurant, this is a little more on the expensive side but the food is great. Sea Side Bar over in Parlor would be the next best thing in Bathsheba they also sell great food, both Round House and Sea Side Bar are about a 5 min walk from the Surf.
