Costeño Surf School in Sayulita was established in 2010 by Adrian "Gato" Rodriguez - a local waterman and surf pro. The surf school is located on the main Sayulita beach right in front of the famous El Costeño Restaurant. 

Our Sayulita Surf school, as well as surfing, is for everyone! No matter if you have never tried surfing, or you just want to get better at duck diving or cutbacks, we cater our lessons to all levels. We guarantee that you will have fun in the safe learning environment and you will stand up and catch your waves.

Our professional and bilingual team includes:

  • Adrian, "El Gato” Founder of Costeno surf Sayulita started surfing at a young age. He has always had a strong connection with nature and especially with the ocean.

    "
    I was lucky enough to grow up in Sayulita surrounded by good people that taught me how to surf, how to meditate and do yoga, how to do fishing, how to catch lobsters, and octopus  & how to do spearfishing! I started Surfing and competing at a young age and continue to compete these days.

    During my career, I’ve competed and won in different international surf competitions….SPONSORED by international company Vans Mexico, living my dream as a professional Surfer 
    Traveling and surfing all over Latin America representing Mexico in the ISA world championships multiple times.

    I’ve surfed all over Mexico from north to south of the country getting as much experience and knowledge so I can fulfill one of my dreams of having my own Surfschool. I always had the dream of having my Surfschool!
    Working at different surf schools back in the days .

    Each of them had their teaching methods!..thinking they were doing it just for the money and not because they wanted people to learn how to catch and ride their waves.
    So I thought that the best solution was to own my Surfschool and be able to share the philosophy and passion  I have for life and surfing! 

    Now In days thank God and to you who decide to learn to surf with @costenosurfsayulita,  I’m living my dream of sharing my passion, surf techniques, and experiences."

  • Kevin is Adrian's little brother. Just like his older brother, Kevin loves the ocean. Kevin started surfing at the very young age of 7 years old, encouraged by his brother. Now Kevin is considered to be one of the most promising upcoming local surfers in Sayulita. When Kevin is not teaching or working at the surf school, you will see him making beautiful cutbacks and turns in the lineup. Don´t hesitate to ask Kevin for surfing tips, he will gladly help you out. 

  • Luar is a great surfer and athlete. He has been working for Costeño Surf School for years and speaks Spanish, English, and French!  When he is not surfing, you will see him playing around throwing back flips, and doing handstands on the beach. 

  • Ayo is the manager of Costeño Surf School. Ayo is the friendliest and most laid-back dog you will come across in Sayulita. You will find him either running around, swimming, eating, digging holes, or flirting with girls. He loves to be buried in sand, delicious snacks, and people rubbing his big belly. Don't be shy, come play with Ayo anytime!

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!
