    First time surfing and had a blast with Barry's team. Instructors were really helpful and positive. Helped that it was a beautiful day with great waves. Wished I took lessons all week! Would recommend this to anyone who wants to try surfing. Great crew, good times!

    We wanted to learn how to surf so 2 years ago we booked a week down with Barry's. We had such a great time that we bought boards back home and came back again 2 years later. Not only is the crew super welcoming and fun, but they teach to your level, always supporting and challenging you. Love this group and can't wait to see them again! They're also really helpful recommending places to stay or rent a car.

    I took my (hesitant) teenage son to Barry's for beginner lesson and he was riding waves on the first day! Now he wants his own board. Their teaching technique is awesome and attitudes are great. We spent an extra day renting boards and hanging out at their beach spot, felt very welcome. For my intermediate class, we loaded up in the jeep and went to a break with bigger waves, and Matt was super patient and helpful instructor. Bonus: the island waters are beautiful, and turtles popped up in the breaks from time to time. Will definitely go back again!

    We have just arrived back from Barbados after a two week holiday. We had an amazing experience with Barry's Surf School, i took an intermediate / beginner group lesson, which I found to be amazing, and can happily admit I surfed the best waves of my life. I learned how to control my board and truly enjoy the wave. The instructors were very patient and kind, and paid attention to how you surf and really show you how to improve. I also managed to catch these guys surfing the bigger waves in Bathsheba and they are truly amazing surfers. My boyfriend took a one to one surf lesson with Barry himself, and was brought to Bathsheba, which he really enjoyed and learned a lot.

    We also rented a Jimny Jeep through the school, which was great and very reasonably priced, we were met at the airport and Barry kindly dropped us back at the end of our holiday. I found Christie amazing to deal with and genuinely a lovely person, as was everybody we interacted with in the school. Thanks guys for an amazing experience, we will remember this holiday forever, and we really hope to make it back in the future.

    We spent an amazing day at Barry's. We were both beginners with no experience and Danny was a great instructor for us and made me feel much more confident as I was a little nervous at first. Christie is lovely and everyone made you feel really welcome from the moment we were picked up. Wear a good water resistant suncream for the day! Ours wasn't up to scratch so the back of our legs got so burnt we couldn't go back out on the boards you get for the day after lunch. We still relaxed on the beach and had a amazing day.

    We had heard great things about Barry's Surf School, and they did not disappoint. My husband and I got surf lessons for our 10 yr anniversary (he's an experienced surfer, I'm a beginner) and the lessons were tailored to our specific skill levels. We had lessons from both Barry and Danny, who were both fabulous and encouraging teachers. And Christie, who runs the shop with Barry, is incredibly kind and knowledgeable about the island and made us feel like family. Look no further if you want to have a blast at any age and skill level. We will definitely be back.
