If you get the opportunity, make plans to do this! It was a great experience. My husband tried paddle boarding last year and didn't like it but enjoyed this and almost got up.

My daughter and I spent the morning with Matt and Andrew learning to surf at Fritz beach in Beginner waves. My daughter had 7 months of experience but just had her cast removed from a broken wrist one week prior to our vacation. This was my first time surfing after I reluctantly agreed to join her since she had spent... More

Amazing! My three kids (13,17 and 21) and I all loved our time spent surfing at Barry's. At 53 I was hesitant with minimal expectations but had to try it. The instructors were so knowledgeable, chill and motivating. All of us were up riding the waves in no time. So much fun. We will definitely be back. Christie was so... More

I contacted Barry's a couple weeks out from our holiday to book a time to try surfing. Christie was right on the email. We stayed in touch along the way to confirm date and time, and she always responded. After a quick check-in the instructors took over (Danny & Ross). A short shore lesson and then out to the water.... More

As an end of holiday treat, our 13 year old twin sons had a lesson with Barry's Surf School. It would have been the full 5 stars, but only one of them completed the full session - and he was shattered! It may be different on week days, and there may be greater supervision of the students, but the son... More

Last day on the island we decided to rent boogie boards. Barry's Surf School was recommended and were easy to work with. Fun afternoon goofing around with the family. Next time, surf lessons!

We wanted to learn how to surf so 2 years ago we booked a week down with Barry's. We had such a great time that we bought boards back home and came back again 2 years later. Not only is the crew super welcoming and fun, but they teach to your level, always supporting and challenging you. Love this group... More
