Hang on tight: The huge waves that crash into the east coast town of Bathsheba make for a thrilling ride. The surf's almost always up here, since the position of Barbados, far out in the Atlantic, creates a prime environment for surfing, as swells have hundreds of miles to develop before crashing into the island's eastern side.
