My girlfriend and I ventured over to surf with Russell and Mat on a rainy Barbados day, we are different levels and each guy supported what we needed. The waves were great and the lessons complimented what we needed to do to be better. They are great as they pick you up at your hotel and drop off with everything... More

We finally found a great spot and started our lesson. The area was crowded from other surf schools but... More

Was a great experience, well worth the price. We all learned to surf on our first day. I only wish we could have filmed it.

Had traveled to Barbados shortly after a trip to SoCal where I fell in love with surfing. I wanted to grab another few lessons to really dial this craft in. Saw Dread or Dead while driving through town, the shop looked legit and it was close to the water. I instantly assumed this was the place to go. Took a... More

My girlfriend and I went to Barbados to live for a month prior to starting graduate school. We wanted to find a place that was peaceful, close to the states, but also had great surf. That was our criteria for the trip: somewhere we could go, wake up when we want, and surf every day. Barbados was the perfect place... More
