I was last in Barbados 6 years ago and took a lesson with Christian. Just went back and we picked up right where we left off. Small group lessons allow Christian (Boosy) to give you lots of one on one time. I was able to improve on where I left off and my girlfriend was able to get up on... More

Thank you so much Christian for giving us such great lessons and the perfect introduction to surfing. You're a fantastic teacher! I wish I was here longer, thinking of returning soon just for the surfing! hoping I can fit in one more lesson before we return home.

My son and I went along for our first ever surf lesson with Christian. I only joined my 12 year old for moral support. At 58, I thought - 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks'. Within an hour this 'old dog' was standing on the board, riding the waves along with my excited young boy! Fantastic!

Boosy is a good and patient teacher and he makes sure everybody is having a good time. Safety first and then fun! I had such a good time with my friends and would recommend anyone who is going to Barbados to try surfing just for the experience. The water is beautiful and the waves are not hard to conquer, even... More

This can only happen with a really attentive and instructor par excellence. Christian was high energy throughout the time and especially as we all got tired. He is committed to your enjoyment and works hard to ensure you get value for the spend

Having picked up a surf board a couple of times through the years, my experiences never left me feeling like I had made any progress. Each time left me with something off-putting: either it had been unsafe, unfruitful or unpleasant. It wasn't that anything terrible had ever happened, but it just never stuck.. until surfing with Boos. Surfing with Christian... More
