 Additional Information

Park your car along Enterprise Road or on the way to South Point. Two ways down, thru the small public access on the left side of the break or climbing down the cliff face when facing the break.

The break consist of 3 take-off points. Along the cliff is the primo spot, but on big days its hard to make the middle section.

The middle section is where the real barrels are, and leads (after a the wave lets up a bit) into the inside section, a fast beach break with a mostly rock bottom. Be careful here, it hits fairly hard, and the paddle back out is a bitch.

No real locals, because it breaks so rarely, but when its on, most of the south coast crew will be there. Because the wave is so long, it can handle a fairly large crowd, 10-20 before it starts getting crazy.

Atmosphere

Freights bay is/was probably the best left in Barbados when it was on. Head high to double overhead and multiple 5-6 second tube rides with 200 yard rides were not uncommon. Now, because of the sand buildup from Miami Beach on the other side of the bay, it breaks maybe 1-2 times a year. Otherwise, its at 1-2 ft, and fun for longboarders/beginners.

General

Epic break, if you can catch it. Watch out for Roger the longboarder, he tends to drop in *laf*

Shredding the Shredder - Wicked morning session on the board I have dubbed the "tank". Awesome break with a lot of good waves, managed to snag my share of decent ones off the shoulder. I find it difficult to surf the main section just because of how heavy the shredder is to
