Like the idea of advancing your surfing while also taking in the best of Barbados? Or want to learn to surf in perfect, fun waves? Then this trip is for you. Over seven days, you’ll get heaps of expert surf coaching, plus explore this Caribbean island’s insanely beautiful beaches, epic marine life, tasty food and chilled-out reggae vibes. With a group of like-minded women by your side, including Bajan local Jodie leading the way, you’ll learn new techniques, experience the true Barbados lifestyle and have an awesome time together.
We’ll take care of everything both on and off the water, so you can focus on catching waves and soaking up everything Barbados has to offer. Our expert coaching will see your surfing soar. Jodie’s local knowledge of the area means we can find uncrowded waves suitable for your level, whether you’re a Beginner or a Progressor surfer.
The week will include numerous methods to help you improve, such as video analysis and training on land. Consistent swell, bath-warm water and our video team capturing your rides mean you’ll see huge improvements in your surfing during this trip.
To experience more of Barbados, we’ve also included a surf-free day. We’ll take a road trip around the island, pausing at some of the most beautiful – and Insta-worthy – beaches, including Crane Beach. Expect fine powdery sand, turquoise water… and all the tropical feels. We’ll pull on masks and snorkels and dive beneath the waves, and stop at our favourite restaurants for lunch and dinner.
When it’s time to ease aching paddling muscles – or limber up for your next surf – we’ll roll out our yoga mats and dive into two classes with Jodie. These yoga sessions will help with everything from balancing and staying agile on your board to breathing techniques.
As for accommodation, our two oceanside apartments could not be closer to the waves. Positioned right on the beach at Freights Bay, you’re just three steps from the front door to the sea. We hand-picked these apartments because they are so close to the surf. Located on the south coast, Freights Bay is sheltered, with off-shore winds and a long, hollow wave that’s perfect for everyone from beginners to more experienced surfers. You’re going to love it!
The apartments both have a great balcony for enjoying a sundowner while watching the surf – the perfect spot to feel surfed-out and blissed out. The apartments are self-catering, offering the best of both worlds – cook in or eat out. For more info, check out our Accommodation tab.
WHO IS THIS TRIP FOR?
This trip is suitable for Beginner and Progressor surfers. If you’re a Beginner, we’ll get you up and riding in no time. Progressor Surfers will learn how to confidently paddle out back and catch green waves. Whichever your level, we’ll help you to develop your surfing skills and increase your ocean awareness – all whilst having heaps of fun! Come prepared to seriously step up your surfing! Not sure what level you are? Then take our quick test.
Nature lovers will also enjoy the abundance of marine life and incredible scenery on offer, while teachers can also book on since the trip runs during October Half Term. And with loads of great flight connections (Barbados is a short hop from North America and a direct 7-9-hour flight from Europe), it’s pretty accessible, too.
