Christian was such an amazing surfing host. I had never surfed before, and was able to get up and riding the waves super quickly. He also provided GoPro footage of me super quickly which was great to share with family and friends who were not lucky enough to go to Barbados. We also rented boards later in the week after...

Surfing was on my bucket list for ages! Christian made my dream come true- I caught my first wave the second we went in! His service was impeccable, professional but yet friendly and local. We ended up changing our trip itinerary just to surf one more day with him and his friends. Honestly, I did my research online, checked reviews... More

Wow, where to begin? Perhaps at the end! On my last day of two glorious months in Barbados I was lucky enough to spend the morning in the ocean with Christian Boos and some friendly turtles. It was the last of several rental/lesson experiences with him, and I really felt the progress that was only possible with his guidance and... More

I was living in Barbados for four months and spent several weekends in the ocean with Christian. I knew people who went with different instructors and then came along with Christian and they said there experience with Christian was undoubtedly better. He just knows surfing really well and is a naturally good teacher. I would definitely recommend this for people... More

You couldn't have a more chilled and relaxed surfing session anywhere else. It suits the laid back lifestyle of Barbados. Christian's passionate about one thing...Surfing! He knows everything there is to... More

I spent 3 days surfing with Christian last week and it was amazing!!! Despite there being a variety of physical and ability levels in my lesson, Christian catered to each individuals needs and made sure everyone learned and had fun! He even captured some of my best rides on his GoPro and sent me the videos, such a nice memento!... More

This guy... I've been coming to Barbados for many years now and Boos has always been my to-go surf instructor. He knows the island, he knows the food joints, he knows the people, and most relevant for you, this man knows the waves. I would highly recommend Boosy because: 1) Safety: safety is paramount, and you always feel safe with... More

My grown children went there for lessons. They had been to another place before but decided this was best ever. They all had a chance to ride the board with the camera so we have great video of their amazing day.
