A long-awaited dream of breaking through into the Qualifying Series (QS) platform from the beautiful island of Barbados has been realized. In addition to the men’s Martinique Pro QS3,000 April 1 – 8, both men and women will vie for 3,000 vital points at the inaugural Barbados Surf Pro April 11 – 16. The east coast of Barbados’ exquisite island nation has been utilized for the Soup Bowl Pro Junior over the last four years, but now Barbadians welcome the QS to its south coast for this milestone event.
Contest organizers Christopher Clarke, Louis Venezia, and the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. are proud to bring this event to life and put the lefthand reefbreak of Drill Hall Beach, also known as Brandon’s or “Brandends” by local surfers, on the competitive map.
