I had previously taken a few surfing lessons elsewhere before landing at Barry's. I wasn't sure the surfing thing was for me. I decided to try it again with Barry's school and signed up for three lessons. The first day provided a completely great experience with EXCELLENT instructors. I had so much fun and was SO glad I took another... More

We used Barry's during our recent stay in Barbados. And they were awesome. Good selection of boards, great safety and general wave advice. Their excursions always resulted in waves and they did everything with a passion that shone through t every opportunity. Have already recommended them and will be using them again.

I learned to surf in February and wanted to continue to learn and improve. I booked a week "surf package" and had an incredible time. Christie was great when I was planning the trip and she and Barry went out of their way to accommodate my odd travel schedule. They arranged for me to have a lesson on my first... More

I took 4 lessons with Barry's surf school during a 10 day visit to Barbados. The instructors were friendly and super encouraging. I came to Barbados as a beginner and left with the confidence to catch waves on my own. I was able to take a surfboard for a couple of days to practice on my own, which was great.... More

Barry’s Surf school is one of the main reasons me and my boyfriend keep coming back to Barbados. If surfing is on your bucket list, or if you are looking to improve your skills, this school offers the opportunity to do both with private or group lessons. Christie and Barry are very accommodating at lending us boards whenever we wanted... More

Surfing with Barry's Surf School was a highlight of my week in Barbados, and the school made for one of the best surf trips that I have ever taken. I took 6 sessions with the school, and they were both instructive and fun. The waves were small during my visit but the instructors took the effort to find something to... More

I have had several positive experiences with Barry's which is why I keep coming back. On a recent two week vacation my group of 6 rented boards and they were at our place when we arrived. We had the flexibility of trading them out over the two weeks whenever we wanted and it makes no sense to bring a board... More

We decided to have a surf lesson yesterday afternoon. We were staying at Oceans Two next door so had been watching the groups for a few days. I was delighted with the tuition from the instructor Jordan. He was extremely patient, positive, encouraging and made the experience a memorable one plus I even managed to get on the board a... More

My husband and I had a incredible time at Barry's surf school. Both of us had never surfed before. It was sooooooo much fun to learn from this team of brilliant surfers. Their positive attitude and easy smiles helped me relax during the first lesson. And the beach is just incredible. I left that first day with the roar of... More

Barry and his wife Christie have a first class operation. I am an intermediate surfer and they had me at a bunch of different breaks and really helped my surfing. I surfed with four different instructors and each was excellent coach with terrific local knowledge and a great attitude. I also went with a friend who had never surfed and... More
