 Additional Information

Church Point is a slabbing right break over a serious fire coral reef. Its a short ride, but intense, since there is a chance you will be raked over the fire coral. Rights only, lefts will leave you on bare reef. Paddle out on the left of the reef, the channel is deep and safe.

Atmosphere

Good break when the West Coast is jumping. The coral here is sharp and dangerous, but the wave is good. Watch out on big days, since there is a buoy line surrounding the reef, to protect it from boats. If you arent careful, this line can take you off of a wave in a painful way. Some locals, but nothing too intense.

Church Point - I am a west coast local,"Doctor" as we call it for some reason! is a good spot,i most'ly go left for the sweet barrel but here's the deal,to stay safe on any reef stay on your board, if the wave closes out dont play matcho laydown & navigate between the rocks if u have to never bail head or feet first in shallow water if u have to fall first as u'r going down look for the best spot to "hit" u may have to jump for it, the most safe way to go down is to do like a belly flop with your hands & feet spard wide apart as u hit the water stiffen your body [hands out wide infront] then relax, keep your eyes open do not put down your feet unlest u can see a safe place to put them [stonfish,urchins...Ex]pull your board by the leash while swimming like a frog get on & go again.O by the way the inside conetion on the right is deadly on low tide ,now go have some fun.

Surfed it in 99 - I surfed this spot in '99. Had a riot, all alone out there. Before I got the spot dialed in I tried to go left and would up eating bare exposed reef and nursing reef rash and digging out sea urchins for the rest of my vacation! Should add that I LOVE BARBADOS! Best island ever!
