Join us on our SUP Downwinders!

Paddle Barbados arranges bi-weekly downwind excursions along our beautiful 9km stretch of the South Coast. Moderate easterly tradewinds from November through June offer great conditions for experienced paddlers looking to catch some bumps and get a glorious glide on our turquoise waters!  The downwind adventure begins at Miami Beach in Enterprise and finishes at Paddle Barbados’ shop on Carlisle Bay.

Conditions vary and we often get side off-shore wind, so it is not always 100% downwind. The swell is small to moderate and makes for great downwinding conditions for those who are new or intermediate in the sport of downwinding. Significant paddling experience is necessary in order to join these excursions.
