About Surf In Barbados

Surfinbarbados is without question the first and most experienced surf school in Barbados.
Established in 1995 it was originally known as “Dread or Dead” surf school. We were not at the time interested in huge commercial success as you can imagine the name “Dread Or Dead” struck the fear of God into most people. However, our approach to the sport of surfing, paying attention to peoples safety and enjoyment were paramount. The word of mouth reputation has kept a constant flow of students over the years. Our attitude still remains the same today. Only the surf school name has changed to SurfInbarbados as we find our success moving us into a faster more commercial world. 2015 Surfinbarbados.com, online surf school, removing the middle man, saving you money without compromising our product.

Dread Or Dead, founded by Russel Garrett, was soon after joined by Matthew Kidd, fellow surfer. Both competitive contest surfers at the time needed money to pursue the sport they love, surfing. Yes we have the trophies and have represented Barbados on various occasions in the fields of surfing, wind surfing and water skiing. We are here for you, totally dedicated to teaching you the art of surfing. Giving you the knowledge we have picked up over the past 40 years of surfing. Matthew and Russell are still active free surfers and continue to train our team riders who are currently making waves of their own in competition surfing both at home and internationally.
