We had a fantastic afternoon learning to surf. Bodie is a brilliant teacher and it’s great to see the video evidence as well! So pleased we tried it. Would definitely book again.

We had a brilliant private surf lesson with Bodie, he's a great guy and both me and my wife progressed massively over the course of the lesson. The videos that he sends after the lesson are really handy to help understand exactly how you can improve and also good for sharing with friends. We will definitely be planning more lessons with Bodie if we return to Barbados!

Bodie is a great instructor! I really loved my surfing experience and the group lesson was really fun, even with perfect strangers. I'm booking more lessons when I'm next in Barbados!

Bodie's school of surf were the highlight of our trip to Barbados! We wanted to learn to surf on our honeymoon, and boy did Bodie's school of surf not disappoint! Bodie's relaxed and friendly manner made sure that our 3 days with him and Christine were a great mixture of fun, surfing and local knowledge of the island of Barbados. We got to help with the boards, saw Bodie's home of living and were just greeted with the friendly bajan lifestyle, Bodie and Christine taught us both to surf, and with the help of both of them, we surfed our first wave on our first and second try! If you are around Oistens please do not miss out on getting to hang around with Bodie. He'll for sure teach you how to surf, and make sure you'll laugh while learning. But furthermore he'll give you tips for places to visit, places to eat and overall make you feel welcomed in Barbados! To top it all of you be sent videos of you surfing after each lesson, and the day after, he'll comment on improvements you'll have to implement the the following lesson. To sum up, Bodie taught us to surf and smile all the time while doing it! We loved everything about it! Don't miss out. And if I haven't convinced you yet, there's turtles in the water ;-)
