Soup Bowl is a world class wave on the east coast of barbados it recives year round trade wind swell and is surfable year round. It has been described as Sunset beach when it gets big, A powerful wave with good barrel sections when the wind id right. A rip will take you right out into the line up, but watch out for Urchins on the inside.
