Bodie rocks. He is easy to get a hold of to book a lesson, he comes prepared and gives detailed on land instructions in an informative and entertaining manner before heading into the water. He even brings Surfing shirts and lends them out to protect against sunburn/rashes from the board. I’d definitely recommend taking lessons with him. The GoPros that he attaches to the board are a nice touch and allow you to post pics and videos of yourself to social media to impress all your friends of your new found Surfing skills :) Freights Bay, where the lessons take place is beautiful and it’s fun to hang out with the turtles while you’re waiting to catch a wave.

We were complete novices, in Bridgetown for only a day on a cruise. Barry picked us up at the cruise terminal, ferried us back to the school and then we got set up to go out. Ruben patiently worked with my wife and me on the beach and in the water. Very safety conscious and very interested in figuring out ways for us to succeed. And the whole place emphasizes the importance of having fun and enjoying the experience. Just an excellent experience and we plan to return to finish the challenge of standing up and Surfing.

Line Up Kite Barbados

North Kiteboarding Center. Kitesurf lessons and rentals.

Reviewed By NaT7120 - Grenada

I came down here with the only purpose to learn Kite-surf, and I have chosen Barbados as it has waves, making the challenge a little more interesting, but sandy bottom to add safety to the experience. Barbados really have a wonderful and soft sand.
I felt welcome by LineUp form my first contact email and once on Island it was like I knew those guys for ages.
I had 4 days of intense training and it was as if I was the only student, while the school was busy with groups from different countries, and that's really special.
The school setting is great, and you have to move to different spot according with your progression, but the nice thing is that you see new Beaches and meet a lot of great people.
They are using the latest North equipment and they will follow you every step with waterproof radios to assist you while at sea, is like having them next to you all the way.
Aldo, the most experienced teacher, stress a lot about safety and control, giving me an amazing confidence between big waves and even on land, while Andy is about healthy living and exercise leaving me with more willing to get fitter and eat better. Combined those two guys are just amazing and I couldn't have wished of a better team to learn from.
They will assist you, if you wish, in anything before your arrival, from accommodation to car rental, shopping and else, this will make your trip much easier and enjoyable.
If you are thinking to learn Kite surf while on Holiday in Barbados, don't look no further, LineUp is for you.

Reviewed By dmandel3 - Toronto, Canada

If you are looking for a great way to spend a few hours, keep the kids both young and old busy and to learn how to surf safely Dread or Dead is perfect. Russell, Terry and the instructors didn’t waste a minute running through the basics then getting us out there to ride some waves. Compared to previous surf excursions ( we have done this as a family more than 3 times - 5 kids age 14 to 24 but also saw 6 year olds getting up ) this one was very tame on a beautiful south coast beech. The instructors stayed with the group for the full duration of 2 hours and were very informative and provided great guidance. We loved it and would recommend these guys for their great gear, tremendous patience and eye on safety. Thanks for a great day guys!!!
