My week surfing at Barry's Surf School was brilliant. The instructors were great - reassuring, encouraging, always cheerful and put safety first. After each wave we surfed, they gave good feedback, all the time watching for waves, spotting the tired surfers who needed a tow (thanks!) and watching each surfer who caught a wave. Christie and Barry made me feel... More

We had a great three lesson package from Barry's Surf School. My husband and I progressed well with the very detailed and specific instruction. Following their guidance, we were able to far exceed my expectations of skills in only a short one week time period. The lessons were informative and in small groups. Our second lesson was hosted by two... More

This was our second time surfing with Barry's surf school. Our instructors were Donny and Jack. They were positive and encouraging! My 16 year old daughter was surfing independently within 45 Minutes. Safety was always a priority. I highly recommend this surf school!

My 7 yrs old son mentioned that he'd like to try surfing, after watching several groups from Barry's surf school. So of course, my 5 yrs old also mentioned he'd like to try. The boys had a 1:1 lesson with Simon, who was so amazing with the boys. My eldest really loved it, and simon's coaching was instrumental in their... More

Had a great "intermediate" surf lesson with Barry and crew this morning. Beautiful beach, great waves, great instruction. This is my third time taking lessons here, I come every time I'm in Barbados. The beach is a great spot even for those just watching! Nice waves, some good spots for beginners, not scary, even the kiddos get up easily. I... More

Thank you Barry for helping us with a last minute rental! Typically when we rent boards they are not good quality, but yours were great! My husband's board was a brand new board and he absolutely loved it (any chance you can send us the model # so we can get our own?!) The prices are reasonable and they have... More

They did a great job, was not intimidating and most of all made it fun/simple! Showed up for 15 min instructions on land, made out to spot #1 where waves were more manageable for beginners and then went to spot number two for more advanced waves. In addition they allow you to use the board all day long which makes... More

Wonderful time. Christie and Barry are welcoming and make you feel at home. The instructors, such as Andrew are patient, kind and offer great advice, with no pressure... but help you catch as many waves as possible. There rates are VERY competitive. If my travels take me to Barbados again, I hope to surf with them again, and hopefully I... More
