Bodie and John were really nice and friendly. Great trainers and enjoyable training with them. It was my first time surfing and I learned a lot. They also recommended us some great places to see at Barbados.

This was my 11 year old daughter’s second lesson. She learned so much more with Bodie & was able to stand up on most of her runs. We also got some great go pro footage! Great experience. Would highly recommend
