- 1989! Not 1999

De colindoherty , 31 Jan

Duppies changed my surfing forever and it's the vibiest - Just came across these Barbados posts, and have to say that Duppies is the spookiest place I've surfed on the globe. But in a really interesting "you don't own shit and there is a bigger presence than you" type of way. What I mean is that there is just an incredibly overwhelming feeling like the place is alive, haunted, or dead. Just has something.

1999 I'm surfing with a bunch of bros from Wrightsville NC, and we are touring with Mark Holder (who was the local gnar at SOUP BOWL), and he takes us up there. Him and the other local we were with ran down the trail, and we couldn't tell how big it was, but they were amping. There looked to be some size, so only 4 out of our group decided to paddle after a few rounds of coffee and debating it (ha rolling large w 8 dudes up to a break!). I got down the cliff first, and by this time Mark took off on a wave, way outside, and it was at least 18' on the face.

I'm like 18 at the time, and I literally had to take a shit on the beach holding onto a tree for balance, because my adrenaline was through the roof. This place looks like Sunset or something, breaking way way out in the distance, with a huge channel with tons of currents to get to the outside reef. It was sunny with some clouds, but that initial channel water was so blue it was black. How fucking deep I don't know.

Mark had mentioned you had to pretty much paddle directly to the peak of the reef, heading North, to the takeoff, and push through there to get into the lineup, if there was current, and there was. 10-15 min paddle maybe for skilled surfers? Anyway, did so, pushed though, and as we start clearing the interior waves bending on the reef a fucking 15'+ set picks up, we can see Holder paddling over and he's still 25 yards out past us.

We scratch, and the timing is just right, and after the first 2 go under us, the 3rd one stands up, and I'll forever remember this because it changed my surfing in an instant, I whipped and pushed into the largest A-frame I'd ever seen and never hesitated. Made the wave, 3-5 carefully laid out turns, then kicked out.

See at that time I'd surfed some ok sized surf on previous Caribbean and Barbados trips, but nothing like that. I think we all have had that moment where we just turned and went, and I think if I hadn't done that right then on that wave, I would've sat outside scared shitless as the swell built. So stoked I went. This sounds fucking weird -but that instant I think I went from boy to man, because going on that wave was not something I had planned, I should've been scared to death.

Rest of session it just got bigger and bigger, but confidence was up and waves were ridden well. I remember it kept jumping in size, and when you finish the wave there's really no way to paddle straight in across the channel or you will just get washed into cliffs, so we all had to take a fucking massive wave and straighten out on the peak and get blown up on the reef, just so we would be pointed in the right direction and have enough of the current to work with us to aim for the little beach.

One of the best days surfing I've ever had. Got back to the top of the cliff and the boys were frothing over our waves, and they had pictures!

But... camera bag was stolen at the Bridgetown airport on the way back to NC. We lost all evidence of that Duppies session. Doesn't matter though, only memories, no photos is fine with me.

Truly the spookiest place I've surfed though without a doubt. I think others have echoed that here. Writing it here some 30 years later still clear as a bell.

Duppies - Love this place.! I have been surfing in Barbados on & off since 2001 & had scored perfect Tropicana, big Soupbowls but never Duppies, finally last November I checked it in the late afternoon & it was perfect, long walls & 6ft+ sets rolling in with not a breath of wind & only two guys out. By the time I got down to the tiny beach/cove they were coming in, so sucked up the courage & paddled out alone, fortunatly not for long as I was soon joined by two other surfers (cant lie to you I was relived!) as I knew a little bit about this spots reputation... anyway short story long... scored super clean long walls that just popped up out of an otherwise flat ocean, the odd 8ft face every now & then with a monster paddle back up the coast after you kick out. Dont know about Bulls/Tigers but this place is very special, weirdly a lot of locals steer clear of it.... maybe they know something I dont????
