Next month’s Beach Culture World Championships is expected to open brand new doors for Silver Sands and communities like it around Barbados. So says organiser, Brian ‘de Action Man’ Talma.
With this year’s championship and Waterman Festival slated for May 31st to June 5th, and expected to attract competition form all across the globe in windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand up paddle and surfing, the Silver Sands area, headed by Talma, is banking heavily on organic tourism in a bid to promote the community, as they seek to make it a more safe and healthy place to live and visit for locals and tourists alike.
Speaking during this past week’s media launch for the championships, Talma explained that it was his aim to create the most prosperous sports and culture-oriented community on the island using organic tourism, a concept he had created and was bearing fruit at home and abroad.
