Video: Barbados SUP Surf With Sarah Cole

Fortunately for us SUP folk, our sport, hobby, lifestyle—whatever it is to you—inherently pairs perfectly with those places we call paradise. Barbados is a quintessential example of such places, with offerings that span the gamut for standup paddlers. Its waves range from friendly and frolicsome (as portrayed in this clip) to big, barreling and brutal. Its water is transparent and turquoise. It’s an equally idyllic playground for beginners and pros, and it’s only a stones throw away from the next tropical dreamland down the line in the Lesser Antilles. So, watch Sarah Cole and the crew at Paddle Barbados revel in the playful waves of this Caribbean paradise, then open a new tab and book your flight on over.
