My boyfriend and I went on a cruise that stopped in Barbados so we decided to pre book with Barry. The booking was very simple and was done all in advance online. Barry's wife actually does most of the arrangements. She was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. They also set up transportation for us from the cruise dock (or driver actually ended up being Barry himself). The beach where their little shop is set up didn't have good waves the day of our visit so our instructor took us and one other couple to another local beach. They lesson was great, exhausting, but great! All of us were able to stand up a couple times. The entire day was more than worth the money. One other thing that was super helpful that our cruise itinerary actually changed once we arrived on board. Barry's surf school found out immediately, emailed me, and set up accommodations for our day in Barbados! Would definitely do it again! Amazing experience!

Barry's Surf School has great lessons with a solid instruction & all the equipment you'll need. Barry is a surf pro and has a great system which worked for all of us and we were surfing right away. Cool experience for the kids and parents!

I can't say enough about what a positive experience this was for me, my husband and our two children, ages 7 and 9. Barry took the two adults in a 2-hour group lesson on slightly bigger surf while Ian stayed on the little beach in front of the hut to instruct our two kids for an hour. My husband and I learned exactly what we needed to know from Barry who patiently went over things again and again until we were both getting up on the board and surfing! By the end of 2 hours we were totally exhausted (from paddling out over the break, not the actual surfing) and returned to find our two kids playing on the beach eagerly awaiting our return so they could show us what Ian had taught them. Ian paddled out with them and we watched with glee as our two kids popped up on the board over and over again, Ian staying out with them well beyond his one-hour lesson to allow them to show off for us. The bonus was that Mark the photographer had snapped over fifty photos of the kids surfing while we'd been with Barry so we had plenty of great evidence of their success so we purchased the lot from him. Awesome operation, a little difficult to find (it's behind Scottie's and across the street from The Dover Market in St Lawrence Gap) but I HIGHLY recommend it. Also, Melanie from Surf Barbados, was super responsive on email in advance allowing us to book this well before we arrived on the island.

The concierge at our hotel booked Barry's Surf School for my 2 daughters and from the moment they picked us up at our hotel until the moment they dropped us off, it was a terrific experience. My daughters have surfed before, but were younger than the others in the group so needed a little more help. Matt was great about staying with the 2 of them and within no time they were surfing like pros. They especially liked the "Party Waves". There was also a photographer taking pictures that you could purchase at the end of the lesson. This is great because it allowed me to cheer them on. If you have never surfed before, or need a little refresher you will be thrilled with Barry and his team.
