Great surf lesson
I had a great experience taking a 1:1 surf lesson through Avex. They made everything very easy from booking, getting shuttles to La Lancha, to the actual lesson. The lesson was personalized to my skill level and what aspects of surfing I wanted to improve. I highly recommend taking a lesson with Avex!

The best surf instructors in Sayulita!
We tried a couple of different surf schools for our kids, and this one was hands down the best. They picked us up and dropped us off at our rental house, they were so reasonably priced, and their instructors were just fantastic. I couldn't believe how much progress our 11 year old made in just a couple of days of lessons, and she was begging to do it every day! No comparison between this and the other surf school we tried!

Best day of surfing
Katja was awesome. We had a great time surfing. We grabbed the board and walked to the beach. We did some stretching and practiced pop-ups. We went into the water, which was warm and beautiful and I proceeded to catch waves with Katja’s guidance and pointers. I highly recommend.

Phenomenal experience and really valuable lessons
I took two lessons, back to back days, and had a wonderful experience. The whole Avex team is so friendly and really good at what they do. The lessons themselves were top notch and I’d recommend to anyone visiting sayulita or wanting to hit the other local beaches with an instructor. Thank you Coco and the Avex team!

Great experience. Fun for the whole family!
We had an absolute blast with the crew at Avex surf. This was our first experience surfing and thanks to these guys, it won't be our last. Their top notch instructions, patience, and knowledge made for a great experience for the entire family. I can't say it enough if you are in the Sayulita area and have never surfed, give Avex a call and get at least one lesson before trying on your own. It'll make all the difference in the world.

Thanks again guys, can't wait to do it again!

I cannot recommend Avex Surf School enough!!! Anya was so helpful in getting our lesson set up and very flexible with our timing requests. Gaston was amazing!!!! The lesson was a perfect balance of learning and fun. Gaston made sure that my husband and I both caught a wave - it was one of our favorite days in Sayulita! Would recommend to anyone!!!

Amazing service! Fell in love with surfing! Very professional!
I am so glad that I got recommended to go to Avex surf. This was my first time surfing and coming to sayulita there were so many options that it was overwhelming. After my session with Avex Surf and with Gaston I was hooked and signed up for more sessions throughout my time(in fact I went every day since until my departure). I wish my time here was longer because I would have loved to taken more sessions. I felt very safe in the water with them, learned about technique and most importantly had fun! The feeling of riding the waves was amazing and left me with excitement for this sport. For my friends that come here and want to surf, I will definitely be recommending them. Avex surf is very special and can’t wait for my next visit to sayulita so I can go back to them.

Thanks so much!

Fantastic day and I learned so much!
We went to punta de mita for my surf lesson and Gaston was the best! He explained all techniques so well so I understood each part of popping up on the board, getting my balance and feeling what to do. I really valued his feedback and encouragement on each wave. Thank you so much for the refresher and time out on the water, I had so much fun!

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.
