Surf School & Surfing Lessons

All Day Board Rental Included!

Surf all day With Our Surfing Lessons! Our surfing lessons always include ALL DAY SURFBOARD RENTAL. 

How it works… When you finish your surfing lesson take a break & grab some bottled water from us & some post surfing session selfie pics. Maybe get something to eat from any of the nearby food places in Oistins, Pebbles or Lanterns Mall depending on where we've surfed.

Let that food settle and once you feel refueled find us back at the beach where there is a surfboard waiting for you, all waxed up and ready to go!

Surfing Lessons Schedule

Monday - Sunday

AM sessions starts 0830-0930, finished before midday.

PM sessions starts 1330 or any time after.

We are totally flexible with our surfing lessons start time and will work to suit your vacation and guide you towards the best waves.

Now, we love walk-ins for surfing lessons but we way prefer and recommend that you book your surfing lessons in advance to avoid disappointment.

Please, understand that we have to serve our reservations first and hate to disappoint walk-in surfers if we are already booked out in full. (The winter months can be busy so do book your surfing session ahead of your arrival)

About Our Surfing Lessons

Ride The Tide Surf School Barbados’ group surfing lessons have a maximum ratio of 4:1 surfers per surf coach. 

Every surfing lesson we do will begin with a beach brief. A chronological explanation & practical demonstrations of how we are going to surf during your surfing lesson. We will discuss and demonstrate basic and best practice techniques that will be useful to your surfing success during your surfing lesson.

Once we know the basics on dry land, that will allow us to catch a wave and ride it, we will get straight into the water and start surfing!

GoPro cameras will be filming all of your waves. We have 8 cameras so there are plenty to go around. Our surfers enjoy exclusive use of a GoPro camera all to themselves, all surf session long!

In our surf lessons we know that quality surf coach contact time & safety are paramount. Our smaller surfing groups will allow myself and our team of surf coaches (Noah) to have a bit of “banter” with you and give individual feedback to each surfer after every wave.

Winter Surfing Lessons are nearly always held at Freight’s Bay (Cotton House Bay) LIKE 99% OF THE TIME!

But, mobile means any surf break is open (Drill Hall Beach/Brandon's, South Point, Dover Beach/Salt Ash). We are always looking for the BEST surfing experience for our surfers.

There is the very rare occasion where our Surfing Lessons will be postponed when we feel the surf and swell conditions are unsafe, that’s when the waves are too BIG or too small.

If we cancel a session that cannot be rescheduled we will refund in FULL.

All other cancellations made with 72 hours notice can be refunded in FULL.
