Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Barbados, Guadeloupe and Martinique comprise the Windward Islands, a chain of islands with excellent surf prospects. Named after the easterly trade winds which hit these islands before hitting their northern cousins. Peak surf season is from October to March with the region regularly hit by swells moving down from America's East Coast. The trade winds bring consistent onshore swell to the east of the island but it is rarely of a high quality. As on all the islands here surfing is mainly conducted off their northern reaches with numerous high quality reef breaks across the region. Barbados's Soup Bowls and Martinique's Anse Couleuvere being particular highlights. Generally all the best waves here are reefs and points with some average beach breaks. Sea temperatures remain between 25 and 28°C or 77 to 82°F.

News Image Habagat’s Irony, The beauty and the destruction
With its typically placid waters the Davao Gulf is not known for any surfing grounds, however the month of August heralds a climatic exception when the placid waters give way to the monsoon waves of Habagat. The season lasts a little over a month and this year it has been one the most active monsoons for some time with large stretches of the coastline drastically altered by the ravages of the flooding waves and many unfortunate coastal communities having their lives turned upside down. Local victims of these erratic climatic patterns are substantiating what climatologists have started to term as collateral damage from western emissions. Few locals see any benefit from these changes and the damaging waves, but the angry forces of nature bring a paradox of both pleasure and pain. For the few local surfers the coastline was lit up. The power and beauty of nature’s energy in its most raw form unfolded upon their shores exposing how the coastline of Davao Gulf is perfectly moulded for the art and sport of Surfing
