I have never surfed before and had a great experience with these guys. Christian is a super nice guy who has a casual approach to teaching, he's relaxed and fun to work with. I got up on my second wave thanks to the dryland teaching and his help in the water. By the end of the lesson I was catching my own waves and standing up without help. This guy knows his stuff and makes it so much fun. His GF Natasha is a sweetie and took some great pics of us with her camera from the shore. First class experience for sure and highly recommend

My boyfriend and I visited Barbados last week and on our second last day we wanted to go surfing. I wish we would tried it sooner! Boosy was recommended by our concierge at the Accra. He came to pick us up, took us to the surfing spot, gave us a quick on ground lesson then out we went on the waves! He taught us how to move with the waves and when to swim and stand and after a few push starts. We were able to surf our own waves! It was crazy fun and Boosy is a great teacher and super fun too. I recommend his surfing lesson to anyone who wants to learn. You'll be pro in no time! Thanks Boosy!! -Angela

We have just returned from a great trip to Barbados, but by far the highlight of the trip was our surf lesson with Christian. Not only was the scheduling easy and professional, but the entire experience was smooth from start to finish. Christian picked myself and my husband up, right on time, and drove to the first surf location. His expert eye could tell that another location may be better. Just a short drive later, we found a private surf corner. A quick lesson on the shore and into the water. Within a few tries, I was up (took a bit longer for the husband) and having the time of my life. Good conversation about surfing, Barbados and life in general left us relaxed and feeling as if we were surrounded by friends. Christian knows the locals and is clearly part the surf culture in the area. I would recommend him to ANYONE!!!! BTW, my husband did get up with some expert coaching and we both left with smiles. We experienced something special! Thank you Christian!

My friends and I took one lesson with Christian and we loved it so much, I ended up going 4 times :)
It was an amazing experience and it's a guaranteed success because he takes his time to analyze everybody's performance and tips you on what you are doing wrong so you can actually get better even in a beginner's class!
Seriously, if I ever go back to Barbados I'll probably book my whole week surfing with Christian. What's great is that if you are a group and not at the same level surfing or simply of physical capacities, he'll be able to help/challenge everyone and you will never get bored (with his sense of humour, I'd be surprised you'd be bored at all!!!).
So thanks again Boosy's surf school for making this trip possible, memorable and so much fun!
