Episode Details
Synopsis Tourism in Barbados conjures up cruise ships and big ostentatious all-inclusive hotels, but Sam wants to discover another side of the island, the southeast corner. Here visitors can experience a slice of Bajan culture, particularly at Surfers Point, and Freights, one of the best waves to learn to surf at in the whole world. Local entrepreneur Zed Layson describes it as a swimming pool with waves. Sam meets the local surfers, who share a passion for the ocean. Sam rides perfect azure reefbreaks, tries the local street-food and learns from the locals along the way about recycling and Bajan beach culture. Sam heads further afield, to the remote north and east coast, and talks about the relationship with his home in Cornwall in the UK, a tourism and fishing area, classified as one of the poorest economically in Europe, but also rich with landscape and culture, like Barbados.
