Wonderful Experience
Surfing with Gato and his team was the highlight of a great trip. He and his team were fantastic. We are not experienced surfers but we had such a great time we ended up booking a second day. We had a group of kids aging from 9 to 16 and 4 adults and everyone was able to get up surfing.
His team is both professional and personable and they really went out of their way to make sure everyone was learning and enjoying their time. I would highly recommend them if you are interested in surfing, even if you are not that experienced. The day trip to Punta de Mita is a great deal.

Best Surf Instructor/School in Sayulita.
I researched every surf school in Sayulita before booking with Costeno. I made the right choice! Finding a qualified instructor was my priority for learning and safety. Adrian "Gato" is a professional and decorated surfer who takes teaching seriously but knows how to have fun and challenge you as much as you want. He was so personable and friendly I left feeling like he was family. We spent 3 days surfing with him at 2 different beaches. Choose whatever group size you want but I recommend the smaller the better. I have advanced my knowledge of the ocean and hugely improved my surfing skills and confidence in such a short time with Gato. He is passionate about surfing and it rubs off on you. I am leaving Sayulita on a surfing high thanks to the care, expertise and warm heartedness of Gato! This is your best bet for surfing lessons. Surf Costeno!

The best surf lessons in Sayulita!
We used costenos surf school and absolutely loved every minute of it. We had four beginners and all of us were able to stand for our very first wave! The owner Adrian aka gato was amazing, he answered all my questions before the trip via email. We set up a time to go out but he was very flexible and we ended up going early in the week then expected. It was so amazing and so worth it. We really appreciated how easy they made it for us by showing us every step! We had two instructors and they accommodated based on how everyone was doing so everyone got the most out of the lesson.

Professional Instructors! Unique Experiences! Lots of Fun!
We had three full days vacation and was very fortunate to have Adrian aka Gato and his team as our surfing instructors at Costeno School. There are about 12 different schools in Sayulita that offers surfing lessons. I choose Costeno for two reasons: they are local folks and they are professional surfers competing nationally and internationally. We had only three days for surfing on Thanksgiving holidays. My daughter is intermediate surfer and I have never tried it in my life.

I really wanted to try surfing because I was very curious to know what my daughter was going through. Adrian has all the qualities of exceptional instructor: patience, passion, persistence and encouragement. All worked for me. Now I know the joy of riding the board, technique upon I can improve and pain of hard work to get to the joy of ride. But more importantly, I understand my daughter a little better!

She on the other hand had a blast. Not only she got numerous tips on her riding technique, Adrian is very generous on sharing his knowledge and skills, but also she got the surfboard of her dream to ride. The owner invests in really good boards to ride so you do not have to bring your own. I suggest to contact Adrian and make an arrangement if you are more advanced surfer.

We had several trips where there were very few people and a lot of great waves to catch. We did multiple surf trips and enjoyed absolutely beautiful beaches. It was unique experience that you can only get when partner with passionate people who know what they are doing.

Adrian also told us that he is arranging day trip to local waterfalls and show places that are not open to mainstream travellers. Only locals know about them. We did not have time on this trip but will definitely come back.

To all of the above I also would like to add that all team was just a pleasure to deal with: joking, laughing, helpful and very friendly. I highly recommend Costeno School. I made my choice based on very few reviews. Communication with the owner and his attitude really differentiate this business from the others!

Never too late to learn/we can't wait to bring the kids!
My husband is 50 and we actually did it! We both learned to surf! After you are married for 20 years it is hard to find something new to ignite the spark of fun. Kevin and Adrian at Costeno definately made sure we had fun. In fact, we had so much fun that we are planning a special trip with the kids just to bring them back here to learn to surf. We have been looking for a trip that our teenagers would enjoy before they are out of the house. They will LOVE this! Perfect golden beach, great surf instruction, cute town with good food - what more could we ask for?

An exciting adventure was provided by these fun loving surfers
As a family of seven between the ages of 12 and 70, we were taking out for outstanding surf instructions. Everybody got on the board and everyone rode a wave. This was a great way to learn or improve your surfing techniques.

What a great experience surfing in Sayulita with Costeno Surf School
I enjoyed a half day surf trip with a group of surfers of various experience levels today.
Adrian, the owner of Costeno Surf School made sure to help each one of us improve our surfing skills. I am a beginner and was able to get up many times and have a great experience surfing the waves on a beautiful picturesque nearby beach. After surfing we stopped for some lunch at a great local spot to complete the day! Thanks for a awesome experience.

Incredible Surf Lesson
I've taken a few surf lessons in Sayulita, but this lesson went above and beyond any of the other lessons I've taken. Gato definitely knows what he's doing when it comes to surfing, and he has a way of teaching that makes learning easy. He is patient, encouraging, friendly, and made me feel safe and confident in the water. I'll definitely be taking more lessons from him!
