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!

First time surfing, experience of a lifetime!
I went during a work trip to Mexico and did a beginner lesson there. It was so much better than I had expected! Everything was explained very well, I felt very safe once got into the water and the beach we were on was perfect to start with. The instructor was always present and able to challenge me when she saw I was making progress. I would have done another lesson the following day if I wasnt flying home the next day. The whole experience was seamless, collection, class and drop off. Everything was easy, we just had to show up and have fun :) I can highly recommend Avex for any adventure while in Sayulita! Thanks again for having us!

Great beginner surf lesson at La Lancha beach
Had a wonderful beginner lesson with Matias; he explains everything really really well and tries to teach you from day 1 how to surf on your own without a teacher with you pushing you into the waves. He was very patient and offered lots of helpful feedback to help me learn the right form. I also really appreciated that he took me to La Lancha, which is a much more beautiful and less crowded beach than Sayulita.

Best surf school, 100% recommend them!
I highly recommend Avex Surf School if you’re going to Sayulita and planning to take surf lessons. All the instructors are very professional, super friendly and the fun is guaranteed with them! I’ve taken several surf classes at different surf schools before but they’re definitely the best. I was lucky enough to meet Gaston who first made sure we get to know each other, get an idea about my level at surfing and set my goals and then we agreed on me getting a surf pack and we started working on my goals. For me the main difference between them and other surf instructors was that they (in my case Gaston) make sure you get what you want, pay attention to you and start working with you based on your goal with surfing. I’m very grateful for all the things what Gaston taught me and for helping me getting over my fear as well. Either you go just for the experience or you want to get better at surfing and need some quality coaching I 100% recommend them.

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.

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.
