This is the biggest surfing event on the Barbados Surfing Association's Calendar. This year we are reintroducing the concept of a Surfing Festival, where different aspects of surfing and local culture will be highlighted. Expect to see amazing surfing at this international event, the famous bikini contest, live music, arts & craft, local food and much more.

Address: Soup Bowl, Bathsheba, Saint Joseph, Barbados 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.
