Russell and his team made me feel at home. I am actually a local barbadian and tried surfing for the first time. I was scared, nervous and tense. Russell was extremely patient with me and coached me no matter how many times I wiped out (which was plenty). I felt like I was having a personal lesson even though there... More

My husband and I and our two daughter (9&10) thought we would give surfing a go on holiday in Barbados. We had no experience and found ourselves in the very capable, experienced and knowledgable hands of Surf Barbados. We thought at best we might hover on the board before heading under the waves, but we all got up on our... More

As a large group of complete beginners, Russell couldn't have been a better instructor!! He made sure we all had a great time and we were all standing up and catching our own waves by the end of the three day surf school! Russell came to pick us up from our apartments each day and it was no problem that... More

When I first started the Surf in Barbados 'Zero to Hero' three day surf school, I didn't expect much; as I only surfed once before in my life, I imagined I might only be able to stand on the board by the end of the experience - if that. However, with the thoughtful and experienced guidance of surf instructors Matthew... More

My 13 year old son had his first ever surf lesson with Matt this morning. After a quick demo on the beach my son was out on the water. We couldn't believe it when he stood up on the board on his first go. The 1 to 1 tuition was excellent and my son thought it was amazing- he is... More

Such a great relaxing time out on the water! Russell, our instructor, was a very friendly, seasoned man of the island! He gave great instruction and made learning paddle boarding very easy and fun! Once we got paddling down the coast, Russell even paddled over to a catamaran and got us some beers!!! The experience was amazing, I highly recommend... More
