Had an excellent time taking my first two lessons with Matthew. Very patient and genuinely excited to see me improve. Will be going back to Dread or Dead if (when) I am back in Barbados.

We had the best time learning how to surf with DoD! I was up and surfing on my very first wave!! The entire experience completely exceeded my expectations (and changed my mind about surfing). You’ve got to spend at least one morning with Russel and his team - you won’t be disappointed!

My partner and I found this surfing school by chance and I am so pleased we did!! Russell and his son are very helpful and taught us about long term useful tips on safety, technique, what waves are best to catch, etc. They actually get in the water with you (unlike other schools I have experienced in the past where they shout and try to direct you from the shore!) and guide you. They also have good quality and various sizes boards so you can change boards as you start getting better. I recommend this school 100%
