7-Day Caribbean Surf Adventure

Join Us In Barbados

Our Barbados retreat is designed for those looking for a surf adventure where local knowledge allows you to get under the skin of a magical Caribbean island. As the home to Rise Up’s founder, Phil, this is one of our most unique trips as his local knowledge and connections offer a look into this island paradise that you just simply wouldn’t get otherwise. This trip is perfect for all surf abilities.

The Surf

Barbados is blessed with so many fun waves on all sides of the island and, luckily, we know how to find all the ones that are not on the map. On this trip, you’re guaranteed to surf with minimal to no crowds everyday. Our unique coaching style and methods will empower you to learn to surf, or improve on your current surfing skills. All surf levels welcomed.

Yoga & Activities

Yoga is an integral part of the day and is scheduled to fit in with the daily surf sessions. When you’re not surfing or practicing yoga, we will take you on the following adventures to experience the unique culture and nature of Barbados.

  • A catamaran cruise
  • Hiking and horseback riding on the rugged east coast
  • A sunset cruise on a glass-bottom boat
  • One meal out to a local seafood restaurant

Optional activities (not included) are kitesurfing, golf (one of the biggest courses in the Caribbean!), fishing and tours to Harrison’s Cave or St. Nicolas Abbey.


Our accommodation in Barbados is a luxury private villa nestled amid the swaying palm trees. The spacious two-story property is located just five minutes away from where Phil grew up and is perfectly located to explore the area’s perfect beaches, surf breaks, fine dining and excellent shopping.
