BARBADOS SURFING - November 2006 Compliments of the Nation News
RIDING HIGH! There are some events on the Barbados sporting calendar, that, rain fall or sun shine, continue to put this island on the map. One of those is the annual Independence Pro Surfing Championships at the Soup Bowl in Bathsheba, St Joseph. The event was renamed the Reef Surfing Classic this year, and fans turned out in the hundreds last weekend to witness about 100 surfers from 17 countries make a splash. Barbadian competitors put up a good show, but the overseas competitors were the ones who came away with most of the spoils. Here, Barbadian surfer Jason Holder comes hard off the lip of a wave at the Soup Bowl last weekend.
