Had the best surf lesson, the teachers really did teach you well and I was standing up on the surfboard pretty quick. I will definitely come back and take another surfing lesson when I’m back in Barbados. Thank you all

Top notch service! Whole staff was friendly and accommodating! Family-run business with laid-back island vibes. Axe and Matthew were awesome instructors and catered to a variety of skill levels. Highly recommend this experience if traveling to Barbados, especially if you have a love of the ocean and want to get some physical activity in while you are there.

Russ was great! He gave me a lot of good information about the different breaks around the island. He also had a great selection of rental boards. Anything from good shortboard to beginner longboards. I highly recommend stopping in!

Axe was awesome! Arrived to the surf school, loaded up the boards and we were off to the beach. Axe gave us a quick yet informative pre-surf lesson and within minutes we were hitting the surfs. You can get some great pictures from Bolt as well for a small fee. Excellent time hitting the surf!

Matthew gave my sister and me a fun beginner surfing lesson at Drill Hall beach last week. He’s a former national champion, a lovely person and super patient instructor. Highly recommended.

We are beginners and Axe was amazing at ensuring that we had a fantastic time and managed to surf on our very first wave thanks to some excellent teaching and prompting when needed. Highly recommend this team who will ensure that you have a great time.

Dread or dead is the place to go if you're looking for the best surf experience on the island! Russell's quick responsiveness and help in choosing the right formula for you, so you get the best out of your surfing is great! Additionally, his surfshop offers the greatest of material that you need for surfing or skating. You'll meet Jasmine his partner who's a great and friendly help to make sure you find the things you're looking for.
The cherry on top were my surfsessions with Axe, Russell's son. Out all the places I've been, I've never felt more comfortable and at ease in the water. Axe has a gift to give you self-confidence and courage in the water. His energy and vibe is one of a kind. In the water he'll give you the best of feedback with each wave so you can adjust and improve in a very short time. I cannot recommend this place enough! Mahalo for making my surftrip epic!
