This was my first ever experience of surfing, and it was absolutely brilliant! Really friendly team, the instructors were fun, patient and really good at picking up little things I was doing that made a big difference, so within 4 attempts I was up and surfing and loving it! I had a morning lesson, but the board hire was for the day so in the afternoon I could go out again and try for myself. Can;t speak highly enough of them, definitely a 5 star, memorable experience.

For experienced surfers who, for any reason, do not travel with a board, you will be very pleased with the selection of boards for hire at Barry's. And, in a place that is know for being expensive the board rental price was reasonable. What I paid for a board for 5 to 7 days was less then I would have been charged by the airline for bringing boards round trip from Norway. During my next visit I may well take advantage of a surf excursion. People I met at Barry's shop had just returned from a surf excursion and they were all in a great mood and smiling. I also was in the water watching surf school sessions on a couple occasions. I've been a surf instructor my self for over 15 years and it was easy to see the high caliber of teaching, and the success of the students, at the Barry's Surf School sessions.

Surfing has been on my bucket list for a while but I'm not the best swimmer and always found it too intimidating to try. I finally took the plunge however, and so glad I did. The instructors were amazing and made me feel safe and comfortable. They were patient (very patient!), encouraging and got me to a point where I looked like I kind of knew what I was doing (I hope!) Myself and my friend are already thinking about when we can come back and would 100% recommend Barry's surfing school. Thanks guys!

we have been a long time in Barbados for surfing and we surfed always with Barry's Surfschool. We really recommend going there. It is the best surf School we've ever visited. Christie and Barry and all the Surfinstructors are great. they do everything to make you happy. The instructors are working really professional, they keep always an eye on you and tell you what to do to improve your level. They drove us to diffrent spots and explained everything well and it was always a lots of fun with them in the water. Also when you just rent a board they give you good advise where to find the best waves. the whole Team is super friendly and very helpful. They treat you as a Family :) i imporved a lots in this months with Barry's Surfschool, many thanks to Matt, Dane, Andrew, D'Angelo and Dario. You guys are great. And many many THANKS to Christie and Barry for all your help, flexibility and for the great time. we will be back soon!! Barbara and Alberto

For the second year in a row my three boys (15, 12 and 7) and I went surfing with Barry’s Surf School‘s amazing staff. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and our experience. First, Christie makes you feel as part of her family. Second, the instructors are fantastic. This year we went surfing with Andrew and D’Angelo and they were great taking such great care of the boys—all of which had the rides of their lives (they also got to see many sea turtles as bonus). If you have young kids and teenagers who would like to learn how to surf I highly recommend you visit Barry’s Surf School! Thank you Christie and hopefully see you again next year!
