Why Surf With Ride The Tide Surf School Barbados?

Most anybody can learn some surfing from just about anyone that knows a little something about surfing. How much you learn and succeed is another matter all together!

But that doesn’t really matter to a newbie surfer. Most of them just want to have fun, stand on a surfboard and glide a wave to the shore!

So, why surf with Ride The Tide Surf School Barbados?

Well, we make it fun!

Teaching people to surf is what we do and we probably do it better than anyone else (we have been told so!). We like to have fun and we want to pass thit onto our newbie surfing guests. It’s pretty much a guarantee that when you join in at Surf School Barbados for surfing lessons you will probably have some fun learning to surf!

Oh yeah, and you will learn to surf also!

We can be serious about surf coaching and technique.

How do we do this?

I think it is simple really, learn by doing. So we get in the water and get busy surfing! We do start our surfing lessons with a bit of a beach brief and practice demo but like to spend as much time as possible in the water surfing.


Our beach brief is unique to any other surf school in town. It is quick, concise and to the point. There are some need to know points in there, sure, but we like to give our surfers relative information to get them on their feet surfing, standing and wave riding.

We fill in any gaps as and when it becomes necessary.

Our beach brief is 15 mins or less, I know because I timed it! Any longer than 15 mins and you are bored and I am bored and surfing is becoming boring before you have even tried it. That’s just not the “Ride The Tide Surf School” way.

Surfing time, in the water you will always have a surf coach there to help you catch waves and coach you through anything that will make your next wave better than your last! Of course, if you are cracking it quickly and surfing well we will keep you moving forward and progressing with in water coaching so you can grow your bag of surfing moves.

We will GoPro film you surfing so that you can watch yourself and re-live the magic of your BEST wavesGoPro videos are great fun to watch how well you did on your surfing lesson, share and laugh with your friends and also for post surf session performance analysis and coaching progression.

After you have caught ever wave in the ocean and before your paddling fuel tank is empty we like to find each surfer a stella wave or heat winner to the beach where we keep a case of cold beer, juice and water waiting to celebrate and cheers your surfing success!
