If you are looking to surf, just call Barry. I was just there and went surfing with my two daughters and son-in-law. Barry and Danny were great. We spent 10 minutes on the beach and then hit the water. They were professional but fun.

Good value - glad we opted for a lesson and the option of returning to rent out the boards when the surf was good. Will drive you to beaches with bigger waves if the local surf is calm.

oceans 2 is right next to the surf school and is very nice. If you're on more of a budget infinity on the beach is walkable to the school and usually cheaper.

Barry's Surf is located in Dover about 15-20 minutes from Bridgetown. We were within walking distance, just one block away, but they did offer transportation.
