The staff is very professional. We have two teenagers and were a little apprehensive about letting the try surfing but the staff put us at ease. They were very prompt replying to our emails. They divided the group between beginners and the more seasoned surfer's. They kids had a great time!

If you get the opportunity, make plans to do this! It was a great experience. My husband tried paddle boarding last year and didn't like it but enjoyed this and almost got up.

Amazing! My three kids (13,17 and 21) and I all loved our time spent surfing at Barry's. At 53 I was hesitant with minimal expectations but had to try it. The instructors were so knowledgeable, chill and motivating. All of us were up riding the waves in no time. So much fun. We will definitely be back. Christie was so... More

I contacted Barry's a couple weeks out from our holiday to book a time to try surfing. Christie was right on the email. We stayed in touch along the way to confirm date and time, and she always responded. After a quick check-in the instructors took over (Danny & Ross). A short shore lesson and then out to the water.... More
