Leah truly exceeded expectations!
I booked a surf lesson with Leah for myself + 3, mostly beginner surfers, all in our early 30's. The night before our lesson one of us got really sick and Leah was totally flexible and happy to postpone our lesson a few days to make sure we were all able to take part.

On the morning of our lesson, we met her at her beautiful yoga studio in "downtown" Sayulita, where she explained the basics of surfing to us using yoga mats to demonstrate various moves. It helped to absorb all the information in a peaceful environment before renting boards and heading to the beach. We all felt comfortable getting into the water and took turns catching waves with Leah's help. We all stood up on our first try!

Leah has a really clear and positive teaching style, with a laid-back vibe. Of all the other instructors and students I witnessed in the water that morning, it was clear that Leah is special. Highly recommend!

Outstanding Instructor for Surfers and Yogi's!
I found Leah to be a fantastic instructor, particularly as I think us women approach surfing differently. Working with Leah, you start to understand the waves, how to stand up, how to turn (the sit and spin is worth practicing!) so you can catch a wave with confidence as well as understand the safety aspects of surfing. And so then you become confident enough to catch your own waves! This was my second time back in Sayulita and I would not consider any other instructor or surf school than Leah. I would also highly recommend one-to-one lessons as you will probably progress much quicker. She is also a friendly, fun and easy-going teacher.

One other valuable lesson with Leah was where we sat and stared at the waves for a long time, working out which ones were catchable and other things you need to know like what angle /degree to catch the wave at. This definitely helped with catching my own waves.

I also did some yoga and meditation with Leah the first time I was in Sayulita which was excellent and the yoga studio is designed beautifully and is very calming.

Top Notch - Highly Recommend!
It’s crazy how two hours can change your life. This is how i feel about my surf lesson with Leah! I cannot express enough gratitude to Leah and her surf lessons. As i was a complete beginner, I thought I might feel overwhelmed, but Leah is thorough in her explanations. She is calm and patient. I stood up on the board during my first lesson. But in my opinion, more important than standing on the board, was the knowledge Leah shared with me about safety in the water. I felt after just one lesson, I had a good set of skills for reading the waves, and maneuvering around in the sea with an awareness that ensured my most safety. I ended up taking a second lesson with Leah about a week later, and I believe that that second lesson really proppelled my confidence. So much, that i felt confident going alone to surf. Now I go almost every day to experience the sea, to catch some waves and I have to say that every day I catch at least one wave AND I feel comfortable in the water. All thanks to Leah and her simple yet precise explanation. If you have been hesitant to take a surf lesson, or you are hesitant to be a beginner at something, drop your fear and contact Leah! You will be so happy! So grateful!

Fantastic Surf Teacher!
Our entire group of 7 surfers included some that were new and a few that have had lessons before. Leah was able to accommodate everyone and has a wonderful, feel-good, approach. Everyone left smiling and felt much more confident on the surf for the rest of our vacation. Thanks Leah!

Reserve your lesson with Leah!
As a total noob to surfing, I wanted my first attempt to be with a thorough, considerate, and encouraging instructor. Leah is all that and then some. She was sensitive to my physical limitations and encouraged me to have fun, because that's the whole point of this sport! I'm stoked that I gave it a go with such a genuinely positive person who has safety and fun as the top priorities.

10/10 best decision of our trip!
My husband and I had never surfed before. Leah was so welcoming, kind and thorough with her instructions. We were made to feel very comfortable in the water. So positive and reassuring!
A bonus...she gave great food recommendations near by. All in all, perfect day spent in Sayulita.

An Incredible Teacher and Experience
I had the pleasure of taking three lessons with Leah and only wish I had had more time in Sayulita to take more. Leah was a ton of fun, full of energy and an incredible teacher. I came to Sayulita to learn to surf and to feel confident with myself, that I could take what I learned and keep surfing and learning and she provided exactly that. I could not have asked for a better surf experience. I absolutely plan to return to Sayulita in the future and take more lessons with her.

Amazing Surf Instruction
I cannot say enough about my awesome experience with Leah. I was in Sayulita for 10 days and I did two days of lessons with Leah at the start of my trip. She made it really comfortable, safe and fun. We started on yoga mats doing a visualization and it made a huge difference right from the start. This made me feel grounded before even getting on a board. She was really knowledgeable with her surf theory which provided a great basis before going into the water. Leah provided a lot of support and motivation in the water as well. I highly recommend Leah to anyone looking to learn to surf, to improve their skills or to just have fun with someone who really knows the area.

Great yoga instructor!
We recently had Leah come to our house in Sayulita for 2 private yoga lessons and I highly recommend her to anyone else looking to do the same. She is a lovely person and she led a great class. We had quite a mix of people (beginners, pregnant, aged 64 and somewhat more experienced) and everyone enjoyed the class. We were also in town for a wedding and she matched the vigor of the class the morning after the wedding to the ‘energy’ of the room, so that everyone was very happy again. And at the end of class she handed out tarot cards for a reading and the following day read our chakras for some additional fun. While we may not be the most experienced yogis- I have no doubt she could lead a more experienced group just as well.
