Surfer engaging in stand up paddle boarding at dusk in the Caribbean island of Barbados. The sport is an ancient form of surfing with a Hawaiian origin and has become increasingly popular in the last ten years. I took this picture from my apartment and was surprised to see this lone surfer out in the open ocean alone.

Location: Accra Beach, Barbados
