Highly recommend this surf shop. We had Axe as our instructor and he was absolutely fantastic! I was scared because it was so wavy out but he made me feel safe and stuck with me the whole time. I honestly can't say enough about what an awesome person Axe was. We both got up and had a fantastic time. Hoping to get back and take another lesson ASAP!

Booked with Dread or Dead before going and had a really fun hour or two surfing at Dover Beach. Our instructor was Matthew, who was brilliant. Gave good advice and encouragement to beginners and made sure we did most of our learning on the water. They provided tops for the surfing too which definitely meant the sunburn wasn’t an all body affair!

I decided to book a lesson with Dread or Dead at the beginning of my holiday and I enjoyed it so much I ended up going back nearly every day I was in Barbados! The briefing on the beach was informative yet easy to understand before getting out onto the water and covered all the safety points clearly. After each attempted wave I was given feedback to improve on and before I knew it I was catching waves on my own and surfing right up to the beach!

The instructors Axe and Tai made me feel comfortable and safe throughout the whole lesson and mostly importantly made sure I had great fun.

When I am back in Barbados I will certainly be visiting Dread or Dead again, highly recommend!

Amazing experience! The instructors were very patient, pleasant and helpful. It was an especially nice touch to be transported to and from our accommodation. Perfect for beginners.

Axe and Matthew were incredible guides. They wasted no time on the beach and took us right into the surf. They were super patient and gave great instruction. Highly recommend them for a surf experience. They worked well with little kids and they all got up on their first try with their instruction.

Had a great time today with Axe and he showed me the basics again after 20 years off the board. Beginners session was perfect and the waves decent enough to get that surf feeling going again. Friendly staff and great shop to pick up some merch

Had a great experience, the instructor was really enthusiastic and helpful.

There were 4 of us all beginners and after about half an hour we were all able to get up an the board and had plenty of chances to do really enjoyable surfing.

Definitely recommend
