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.
