A secret surfing paradise in the Caribbean
For a few days at the end of spring, in what's considered the last days of tourist season, Fathom's video crew spent time with the most recognisable faces in Barbadian surfing. We chased the tides with John and Jacob Burke, teens with incredible natural talent; set up camp on Bathsheba to catch 19-year-old pro shredder Chelsea Tauch; and tooled around with surf veteran Brian Talma (and his gaggle of water babies), who showed us the best beaches on the island for novice wave riders, extreme paddle boarders, and kite surfers.
Director Rob Corso, cameraman Brendan Burdzinski, and Fathom co-founder Jeralyn Gerba were up and down with the sun, scouting the islands in circles, filming from craggy cliffs, shacking up at easy beachside lodges, and making nice with locals along the way. What they discovered and ultimately captured on film is not Party Time Barbados or Bourgeois Barbados but One With The Elements Barbados – which might just be the very best version of Barbados there is.
