El Gato the surf Pro will make you a surfer!
Our surf lesson experience with Adrian “El Gato” was one of the best things about our family trip to Sayulita. First time surfer mom and second time surfer pre teen. El Gato was thorough, patient and highly skilled in both surfing and teaching surfing to all ages. Can’t recommend highly enough. Going with Costeño for surf lessons is a must. Adrian is the owner and instructor in addition to being a highly skilled surf pro. He can get anyone at any skill level out there catching waves.

Best Surf School in Sayulita
I’m a beginner surfer from San Diego, CA & Gato totally adapted to my skill set. I’ve only ridden foam boards but wanted to give fiberglass a try. With Gato’s help I was catching waves on a fiberglass within the first 10 minutes in the water. He also had great suggestions to tweak my technique. I will definitely be visiting Gato again & recommend him to family & friends!

Gato (aka Adrian) is the BEST!!
You will rarely find a more genuine, passionate, friendly and deeply caring guy as Gato. He exudes pure, unadulterated enthusiasm for surfing. He cares more about helping you to learn the sport of surfing -- and to LOVE IT -- than taking your money. Everyone simply loves Gato for these virtues...and his humility in spite of his world-class championship stature -- well deserved!

Best surf Instructor you can buy
This is the best surf instructor you can get hands down! I had the most amazing time and highly recommend this to everyone who visits Sayulita! Gato is a complete legend and teaches you all the fundamental skills needed not only get up on the board but enjoy your time out there. I was able to get up on several waves and ride them all the way back to the beach. Such an amazing experience, book your session now there will be no regrets!!

Learn to Surf with the Best
Gato at Costeño is the best surf coach to work with in Sayulita. He is entirely focused on improving your surf skills, and super focused on one-on-one coaching.
Lessons with him are always super productive, and he's always on top of giving you advice and pointers to improve your surfing. Gato is a real pro, and it seriously pays to learn from the best.
Gato is offering a super premium bespoke service at a really, really good value. I highly recommend booking a surf lesson (or 10!) with Gato when you are in Sayulita.

We built and improved skills and techniques, started a life long passion for surfing with Gato.
Great instruction, with feed back on every wave helped ensure each session I was building the right skills for a solid and technicality strong foundation for falling in love with surfing. I caught the" wave of my life" on our 5th session and I will return in March for more of the best vibes on the beach! Gato saved a child from drowning in the rip tide one earky morning session. He was so calm and really didn't think much of plucking a screaming kid from the ocean. He's a hero, always listening and aware. He can teach you many things, a great man!

A must-have experience
My wife and I took a personal lesson from Adrian, the owner. He did a very good job explaining the techniques and basics of surfing while on the beach. He was very detailed and made sure we understood everything before getting in the water. He took us to the perfect area of the bay. Not too crowded, with good waves for beginners. We went around 12:30. He is awesome. Really fun and totally worth the money. We highly recommend Adrian and his staff at Costeño Surf School. It was an experience we will never forget - we will be back!

Awesome Surf School!
Our experience at the Costeño Surf School can be summarized in one word: EXCEPTIONAL. Gato has been our instructor and has far exceeded our expectations, we are more than grateful. He has taught us all the necessary basics to learn how to surf, with an extraordinary knowledge of the sport as well as the sea and the Sayulita coast. If you want to live the best surfing experience and besides the hand of a local person of the town, the Costeño is your place, there is no better option. We have already done it again and we will do it again the next times we come back to Sayulita!

Best surf instructor in Sayulita
Our family had so much fun surfing with Adrian. He was so kind and patient with my timid son, who was able to surf and have a blast, I could not recommend Costeño for surf lessons more. Adrian was also great with the timid adults in the family and we were all able to surf. We went back to Costeño Surf School multiple times during our stay because the experience was so amazing.
