Being a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over and is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along its shores at almost any given day of the year. The east coast boasts the most powerful and biggest waves and the foaming surf of the 'Soup Bowl' is a favourite spot that is internationally recognised and the venue for the annual surfing contest. Lessons and surfboard rentals are available, as well as surf tours for the more experienced.
