barbados=BEAST - Im fourteen, and i live in north florida. But i went on a surf trip to barbados. the southern beaches are where you need to be. Nice barrels and everyones really cool. But When your about to hop on dont look down cause all you see is fire coral and when you eat shit your gonna be hurting.
