Excellent instructors and they had our large group of adults and kids "surfing" in a few hours. We had three, two hour lessons spread over 5 days over the Christmas break and full board rental all week. Matthew, Andrew, Jack were all very patient and we loved the videos shot by Matthew on my GoPro. Spend your dollars here if... More

Great owners and instructors. Very well organized. Excellent rental equipment. They will take you to the island's best surf spots depending on the conditions.

Just returned from 12 days in Barbados. The main reason for the trip was to surf. I found Barry’s on Trip Advisor and from my first contact with Christie back in October everything has been first class. You couldn’t find a more friendly and enthusiastic team. We booked the ‘Surf stronger’ package which gave us 3 classes and a further... More

my first time surfing. The 4 instructors that taught is in and out of the water were perfect. The pre-water instructions were not too elaborate yet made a big difference once i got into the water. Even if you are a decent surfer, these guys know the water well and guided us to the appropriate waves. On this particular day... More

Just returned from Barbados and spent a wonderful afternoon surfing with Barrys Surf School. We were a party of 6 and all of us were successful at getting up on the boards! Great teachers and tons of fun. Very well organized and on time. Beautiful uncrowded beach to surf at. Highly recommend this surf school. L.J. Canada

With their help, the kids got up on there first wave[Dads took a little longer...] 2 hours was long enough for the first... More

My week surfing at Barry's Surf School was brilliant. The instructors were great - reassuring, encouraging, always cheerful and put safety first. After each wave we surfed, they gave good feedback, all the time watching for waves, spotting the tired surfers who needed a tow (thanks!) and watching each surfer who caught a wave. Christie and Barry made me feel... More

We had a great three lesson package from Barry's Surf School. My husband and I progressed well with the very detailed and specific instruction. Following their guidance, we were able to far exceed my expectations of skills in only a short one week time period. The lessons were informative and in small groups. Our second lesson was hosted by two... More
