Instructor picked us up from our hotel and we surfed at surfer's point on the south side of Barbados. Christan was an excellent instructor. He really broke down all the parts to surfing to help us learn from the bottom up. He was very enthusiastic, encouraging, and personable. Both my husband and I caught our first waves -- assisted and unassisted. Christan teaches at multiple locations and he will take you where the waves are best. Highly reccomend Boosy's surf school!

Growing up in Barbados I have always wanted to learn to surf, but I have never got around to it. Recently I decided to just go for it and I contacted Christen. On the very first wave I was able to stand!!! I was very impressed. He is a great teacher and very patience. Looking forward to my next lesson.

Thank megsc17

On our trip to Barbados, my boyfriend and I decided to try surfing. Two friends of mine already tried it over the last year with Christian from Boosy's Surf School and they had nothing but good things to say about it so the natural thing to do was to go ahead and book a lesson with Christian! As we were staying at the Bougainvillea Beach Resort, on the South Coast, Christian came to pick us up at our hotel, which was awesome, considering we didn't rent a car. You can tell from the start that Christian is really passionate about surfing! He's so fun to be around and knows so much about Barbados. There weren’t any waves where we were supposed to have our lesson so we went to another location. Christian explained the basic on the ground, and then we went in the water: OMG, Christian is right when he says that the hardest thing is not to stand up on the board but to paddle!! Surfing really is quite an exercise but the feeling of finally standing up is wonderful!! And trust me; you will stand up with Christian as a teacher! Christian really knows how to teach and considering we had an entire 2 hours for just my boyfriend and I, you do learn at a fast speed. Did I mention that the price was ridiculously low?! Only $35/person, this is incredible for the quality class we had. I strongly recommend taking a class with Boosy's Surf School on a trip to Barbados: it’s a must! And don't forget to ask Christian about things to do for the rest of your trip: he loves Barbados, knows everything that’s going on around and will make sure you have an awesome vacation!

I've previously had surfing lessons in Hawaii and in Barbados (at a different surfing school), however, I have never learned so much in just 2 hours with Christian. My other instructors never told me what I was doing wrong, but Christian will let you know how to improve your skills.

I would strongly recommend Boosy's Surf School to anyone with an interest in learning to surf. Even as a newbie, you will have no problem getting up on the board and riding waves.

Once you've gotten up on the board and ridden a wave or two, you'll be hooked!

A truly trilling ad fun experience! I have surfed with Christian on all my trips to Barbados and it has become a MUST DO activity for me when ever I visit. Just give him a call and arrange a pick up time and date. If you don’t get on to him immediately I guarantee you he WILL call you back. The fun begins the moment he picks you up. Christan gives gives you an idea of what to expect out on the surf, simple step by step instructions and tips all through the 3hr lesson, he is always with you. So have a light meal an hour or so before, pack your sunblock throw on your reef shoes (optional) and get ready for some fun in the sun!
