Learn to surf on st barths?

I've read a few places that certain beaches on St Barths have waves that might be "surf-worthy". Does anyone know of local shops that give lessons? Thanks.

I don't think Saint Barth is a great place for learning. Waves in the surfspots are too big and too irregular -- hence the name of one of the most famous spot: washing machine. Another spot, Toiny beach is renowned for treacherous undercurrents.

That being said, kids there do learn. There is probably an easier way however.

The surf hut at Lorient, across from JoJo's is the only place I can think of as a possibility.

Lots of water sports on St Jean, they may know of another option.
