Leah brought so much to our week in Sayulita!
Leah came to our AirBnB every day for a week to lead us through a Yoga practice. She fit right in with our group of seven women and provided us with calming, enlightening and playful guidance on our mats.

Echoing "Amazing week of yoga with one ridiculously fun surf lesson"
I fully and completely agree with every word in the "Amazing week of yoga with one ridiculously fun surf lesson" post. Leah is truly a gem! She made an already terrific trip even better. I would recommend her, for yoga and surfing, in a heartbeat! :)

Amazing week of yoga with one ridiculously fun surf lesson
Leah came to our rental everyday to teach yoga to a group of us for a week long mini retreat. Every one of us loved her. She was able to connect with us where we were at and really got to know what we needed. Her style was both calming and energizing at the same time. As the week went on and we got to know each other better it made our experience in class so rich and deeply satisfying.

We had the best time with her and would 100% book with her again.

2 of us had a surfing lesson with her and I was blown away. I wasn't expecting too much out of myself as a person who'd never even carried a surf board before but wow did we have an amazing experience! She was patient, persistent, clear and focused on the essentials. Her focus was on safety and fun which was perfect. With her excellent instruction and help both of us stood up on our first wave and continued to throughout our lesson.

Before our lesson I had no idea what to expect. After experiencing her style of teaching, which led to much success for us, I was so impressed. Compared to the "surf school" types of teachers that were out at the same time I was even more impressed with Leah. There were groups all around us whose instructors seemed more concerned with showing off and suntanning than they were with helping their students learn to ride waves.

Leah is such a gem! She stole all our hearts and I would recommend her a million times over!

Finally a perfect mix of theory, practice and waves! Beginner
Coming from the cold and rough waters of San Francisco, the warm waters of Sayulita Bay seemed like a paradise for beginner surfers. I just needed the right instructor. And Leah Nicole was exactly that.

On the first day, we went over the basic theory, water rules, pop up practice and jumped in to the water. That day I caught sooo many waves!

I had such a good time, I went for another lesson the next day. With clear instructions and instant feedback, I was catching my own green waves for the first time in my life. I was so-so happy. I finally made it to another level. Thank you Leah!

Besides being a knowledgeable surfer and good teacher, Leah is a great personality and fun to hang out with. She cares about safety and will make you obey the safety rules in the water, which I find extremely important.

Will be coming back to Sayulita and taking more classes with Leah to continue progressing.

Very knowledgeable
Leah is a great instructor. Before my lesson with Leah, I could catch a wave but I wasnt in control of where I was on the wave. Leah had a lot of excellent advice that helped immediately. We surfed the main and left breaks which are slightly more advanced than the beginner break. Leah knows the spots extremely well and was an excellent guide to the waves and the social etiquette. I also appreciated that she was always punctual and didn’t surf during my lessons but rather focused on observing me and providing feedback/ instruction so I got the most of each lesson.

Leah is pure magic
I am so thankful for Leah. I invited her to lead a yoga session for my bridesmaids and I the morning of my wedding. I was a complete mess before she arrived and she shifted my vibration seamlessly. She led a restorative, healing class, exactly what my girls and I needed to begin the hectic day ahead. I felt cared for and rejuvenated. Muchas gracias!

Wonderful experience with Yoga instruction
Leah provided private Yoga sessions during our recent Sayulita visit. Our family has various levels of Yoga experience. Leah did a great job balancing these sessions so everyone felt that their needs were met. Fantastic experience. Definitely will contact Leah for our next visit.

Perfect Surf Coach
I've been surfing on and off my whole life. Much of what I know and learned has been from just following other surfers and doing what I think was right. Leah helped breakdown the details for me and taught me what I've always wanted to know, how to be a good surfer in the pocket with others around. She is all about safety and fun! And I'm all for it! Leah really breaks everything down for you from popping up, to paddling, to understanding which waves are going to be good to catch, and so much more. I did three lessons with her and I feel like I accomplished more than I imagined. She has such an incredible energy to her and has such beautiful style when riding waves. I can't wait to go back to Sayulita and learn more from her!

Definitely recommend lessons with Leah!
I had such a great time surfing with Leah. I was looking for a female surf instructor, and not only did she fit the bill, she totally got it. She was extremely thorough with her explanations, we covered so many topics (all of which I knew very little about) such as reading the waves, understanding the water and most imporantly ... having fun!!!

Leah was patient on the water, she gave really great feedback on things I could improve each time and really facilitated my learning starting with really helping me catch the first few waves and ultimately watching me and cheering me on as I started to catch them myself.

I had been self taught for a while and it’s no wonder why I had such a hard time! There were so many things that she showed me to do better/more efficiently. I feel way more confident to continue on my own. I wish I had more time here to practice then do another follow up lesson just to work on more skills. Thanks Leah you were truly fantastic and went above and beyond (those extra tips for videos to watch are top notch)!!

Great surf lessons!
I took my first ever surf lesson with Leah, and she was so good that I scheduled another lesson with her for a few days later! I had a time zone mishap and missed my second lesson, but Leah was super flexible and able to reschedule with me before I left town (thanks again, Leah!). The theory we did before each lesson was super helpful, and she was patient and answered all my questions + listened to my fears about open water. She taught me about all sorts of conditions, how to read the waves, and a solid base of surfing safety precautions. The conditions were tough during my first lesson, but she still got me standing up on my board! Great instructor! Plus, she intentionally supports local women-owned businesses in Sayulita, renting boards for the lessons from the only woman-owned surf shop in town.
