Love Avex!
Avex surf was awesome. My friend and I are both 30 (something) year olds and wanted to try surfing. We were so impressed with the instructor's directions and tips. We were both able to get up (me more than my friend obviously). I would definitely recommend!

They make it easy!!!! Everyone should do it at least once
“We took three, group surf lessons with Avex Surf School. We were a large group of 8, including kids ranging in age from 11-15 years old, and adults and they were able to accommodate all of us with no problem. The service we received was great. They made of feel like we were long time friends. They got the kids engaged quickly with varying skill levels. They picked us up directly from our vacation rental in a large and comfortable vehicle, and took us directly to the beach / returned is to our rental after. They provided us with complimentary beverages and snacks during our lessons, as well as various discount coupons to enjoy during our vacation. We were very happy with lessons as well. they gave us clear instructions and guided us the whole time. they stayed with us and also, you could even see their honest enthusiasm for us each time to caught a wave successfully. The best part of their service was the instructions Also they completely took logistics out of the picture.. we didn't have to coordinate anything except carrying the board to the beach. Lastly, they made sure to take pictures of all of us so that we have the memories and can tell our friends we did it!

Perfect start to our time in Sayulita
Aanya, Gaston, and Mateo were THE BEST! So friendly, patient, and they all three had a genuine, palpable passion for not only instructing surfing, but for Sayulita and the Banderas Bay as well. We wish we could have enjoyed more surf sessions with them on this trip, but we are looking forward to future trips where we can enjoy their instruction again.

100% recommend!
I took a surf class with Avex Surf, Surf School in Sayulita, and I had a lot of fun. My instructor made me feel safe & confident in the water, and it was clear that he was incredibly knowledgeable not only about surfing, but about the ocean, the waves, and the sport in general. I used to have a huge fear of the ocean, so I think that Avex Surf School will do a great job with people who maybe feel nervous to try surfing or try something new & out of their comfort zone. My instructor was incredibly professional with me during the lesson and made me feel comfortable. I love that Avex Surf School is passionate about the ocean, conservation, and environmental awareness—I think this sets them apart from other schools in the area. 5 stars, 100% recommend.

You have to take surf classes with Gaston!
This is something you have to do! The surf classes with Gaston were incredible, he explains everything to you very simply & clearly, and with a great attitude that encourages you to give your best. These classes were a great experience, and when you manage to stand on the board & move with the waves, it is something you do not forget. Totally recommend!

Gaston made it an easy & great experience!
I had 4 private lessons with Gaston in Sayulita and it was awesome. He is not only a very competent and experienced surf-instructor, but also a nice entertainer, kind, and thoughtful. It was my first time surfing, and there is so much to learn, but Gaston made it really easy: after a short theory-lesson and safety-instruction on the beach and some practice in the water, I was already able to stand on the board! He is very motivating and helped me to perfect my technique during the next lessons, and I was able to progress a lot in a short time. I tried also different boards, and it was also possible to have one lesson on the nearby beach La Lancha. It was a great experience, and I had a lot of fun. Thank you very much Gaston!

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.
