Great intro to surfing lesson pack with Avex!
Great intro to surfing lesson pack with Avex!
A lot of fun, learned a lot and am now hooked on surfing. Great way to get introduced to the sport.

Scheduling and logistics were super easy via the website and 1:1 communication over WhatsApp (thanks Aanya!)

I contacted Avex and a few other surf schools shortly before flying to Sayulita. Avex was the only school to promptly reply. I’m glad they did.

Avex even helped me arrange for transport to and from the airport (with a special discount code… thanks Aanya!)

Small independent surf school with knowledgeable and fun instructors.

I bought a 4-pack and did my first lesson in Sayulita and then my next 3 lessons in La Lancha. Each time I walked to the Avex surf shop where the surfboards would be loaded onto a vehicle and we’d be driven over with the students and instructors).

(The bigger places might have more options but less of a personal touch and feel)

Worthwhile experience and company…learned a lot and a had a lot of fun!

Learned to surf in one lesson
Matteo was very patient with both my GF and I. She has a shoulder injury and couldn't paddle much, and he was attentive about assisting her, propelling the surfboard into waves so she could experience popping up and riding many waves. I actually started catching my own waves with only minimal verbal guidance from Matteo. I caught about a dozen waves after some excellent guidance. The instructor will wade out into the water and help you launch your board. He's typically waste to chest deep in the water. The waves are very shallow and very mild and easy to ride in sayulita. The two hour lesson was just right.

Loved it!
I had a private lesson with Katja, and she was so helpful and encouraging. I would highly recommend going to Avex for a surf lesson while you are in Sayulita!

Awesome surf school with great staff
I did one week of surf camp with Gaston, Matias and Katja (the three surf instructors) and it was awesome! They helped me progress quickly, adapted the lessons to my needs and made me enjoy surfing a lot. It was a nice bonus that Katja even spoke German

Best way to learn how to surf!
I took two lessons with Gaston in La Lancha and feel like this was the best introduction to learning how to surf. I listened to Gaston and chose the further location and classes in the AM because there are less people and therefore more space and less anxiety for those who may be nervous about learning a new skill. His instruction was very clear and I felt very supported and motivated throughout the whole learning experience. Gaston is very patient, kind, and fun to talk to and I didn’t feel pressured or anything like that in the way that I would if I learned from one of the instructor at the surf schools on the beach. They all seem intimidating to me but Gaston is friendly and encouraging and I felt like I could make mistakes or be hesitant and still have tons of fun. I’m back home now but I’m trying to get back ASAP so that I can continue learning with my favorite teacher! Thank you for making surfing fun and helping me be fearless!!!

Awesome trip to La Lancha :)
Looking for a way to go from Sayulita to La Lancha, I stumbled across Avex school and Gaston, how lucky I was! We went early in the morning, surfing in perfect conditions surrounded by turtles. Will be coming back for more

Above and beyond
I decided at the last minute to go to La Lancha beach and wanted to find a surf lesson for me and my nephew. I contacted Avex after seeing a pic of them on the La Lancha facebook page. They responded quickly to my outreach and got me set up for lessons just 1.5 hours later. What's more, they sent two instructors, one for each of us since I have surfed before and my nephew was a first timer. Daniel was great helping my 6'3" nephew get up on the board the first time trying. And Gaston was awesome helping me get to the next level. They were both fun and great teachers.

Gaston Baez, founder & owner of Avex Surf School Sayulita, was born and raised in the Patagonia region of Argentina. Being an avid snowboarder and extreme sport lover his whole life, he first founded Avex Surf (then known just as “Avex”) in his hometown in Argentina in 2009, where it was originally known for being a snow-sport company. After traveling and living all over the world (such as Brazil, Ecuador, and Spain) Gaston began to take on the sport of surfing. Gaston has worked at, taught at, and managed many surf schools and companies over the years, but after moving to Sayulita in 2017, his dream was to change the direction of his former company, previously known for its affiliation with snow sports, into his own surf school. That dream became a reality in 2018 when he officially turned “Avex” into Avex Surf School Sayulita, and began teaching and giving lessons, of course meeting other skilled surf instructors along the way who are now a part of the Avex Surf School team.
