Christian was great with me (old man who never surfed) and two kids, pre-teens. Meet us on time (early) and went over to Freights Bay. We got on land instructions (safety first), then headed out to the waves. The waves were big enough to ride but not big enough to scare off even a child. We all got up the... More

I learned how to surf from Christian and I gotta say he's a great teacher and all around fun. I'd totally recommend him for any beginner who wants to learn surfing.

Christian is an amazing teacher, and most importantly he made sure you feel safe. He is very patient and he gives simple instructions, so as a beginner, I felt very comfortable with him. It's definitely a must to have a lesson with Christian if you want to learn surfing!!

Christian Boosy, or better known as Boosy, is an amazing surfing teacher. His first concern is always safety. He is able to adjust his teaching according to the skills and abilities of his students. He teaches many of the McGill students studying in Barbados, and he is able to quickly get the students up and going. He taught my daughter... More

I just returned from 10 days of surfing with Christian and it was the best experience! This was my third trip surfing with Christian and I swear he just keeps getting better, I continually improve and I am always learning something new. This time I brought some friends who had never surfed and within a couple of days of surfing... More

Boosy's Surf School is the best! Christian is an awesome teacher! Our group of 5, with 3 adults and 2 children (6&8) loved every minute of our lesson. Absolutely stunning location, and perfect for first time surfers! Christian is a pro and coached all of us to rocking some quality waves...even our 6 year old got up! Highlights were surfing...

Brilliant surf lesson from Boosy for my friends - a confident and passionate teacher who got everyone standing on their boards by the end of the session at Freights. They were buzzing! Highly professional teacher and a perfect spot for all levels of surf lessons. I'm sure we'll be back when next in BB.

My wife booked this for me as I have been a "beginner" for 20 years but one afternoon with Christian and I caught more quality waves than I have in a lifetime. It was only my tiredness that stoped me getting more! Christian is an absolute pleasure to learn from with patience and expertise in abundance. if you're going to... More

Christian did a magnificent job of handling 6 of us - all with different levels of beginner/intermediate experience. He is one of the best teacher's I have encountered on the water. He is patient, caring, and genuinely wants everyone to succeed. We will go back and see him again when we next return to Barbados.

We had a group lesson with Christian. The lesson was really structured from start to finish. He was very patient and was happy to answer as many questions as you could ask! Very passionate about his surfing! I liked that within the group he managed to tailor the lesson to each person individually depending on their ability. Great value for... More
