Patricia is the Best!
We come back to Sayulita about every 2 years and always rent from Patricia. I brought a bunch of 50+ year old women down several years ago to celebrate my 50th birthday and took lessons with one of her surf instructors. We all got up and had great rides. Since then, I've come back with my husband and kids, and Patty's instructors have taught all my kids to surf. They love it and loved their instructors, who made it easy and fun. Patty is great about money and let us run a tab for the week. Not many people are so trusting, but she is as layed back as they come and really makes your trip hassle free and fun. Don't hesitate to book lessons or rent boards with her. Love, love, love her!

Fun, communicative and effective!
We reached out to Patricia before leaving for vacation and I was very happy to hear back from her right away to set up lessons for my family. We were all a bit nervous about surfing for the first time, especially with two 10 year old boys. There was no reason to worry. Patricia's instructors were very effective as within about 30 minutes the adults were catching waves, and the boys were actually standing on their boards! I was amazed at how far we all progressed in a few hours.

And the boys were in great hands - their instructor stayed with them the whole time and I quickly forgot to even worry about them.

We like Patricia's services so much we booked a whale watching/snorkeling tour with her as well!

Made my vacation
I can not speak high enough praises for Patty and the crew (family) at Patricia’s surf school on a fourteen day vacation with my wife and daughter we were warmly welcomed by Patty, Pablo and the rest of the crew on the first day. There was no pressure or urgency for us to commit ourselves to supporting their business. When I enquired about the cost of surfing and other board activities her reply was “surf now pay later” and no joke that is what happened. We were on the water when we wanted for as long or as little as we wanted, with the ease of an old fashion on honour system established with no mention of payment until we arrived our last day to square up the tab. The convenience of being able to safely store your daily stuff while on the water (ie. shoes, shirt, water bottles, backpack, etc.) was one of the best time savers and something of little effort on their part that I truly appreciated. I’m not sure how much I can carry on with praises. We not only surfed and boarded, we also went on a fabulous boat trip which comprised of fishing, snorkelling, whale watching and learning much from the crew while sharing many laughs. I’m not talking about sixty or more people crammed on a boat for the almighty dollar I’m talking six people and two crew cruising in a boat to some great snorkelling spots and the comfort of not feeling like cattle put out to pasture with snorkels and fins. I felt so much comfort in the endless welcoming environment from this business, so much in fact I would find myself just sitting at the surf shack with any one of them sharing laughs, and often getting recommendations of places to eat or catch entertainment that you otherwise might have missed. I can not thank you enough for the pleasure you guys provided for us on our family vacation

Sincerely Jay
P.S If you get a chance to watch the boys surf do it it’s phenomenal especially Danny’s handstands

Great day surfing in Sayulita!
Our family (including a 10 and 12 year old) rented Boogie boards and I also took my first surfing lesson ever. The waves were incredible and my instructor (Alex) did a fantastic job showing me the ropes. I was up and surfing within the first hour! Paul and Patricia are super cool people and we're very accommodating to our family. Can't wait to come back.

Had a great experience paddle boarding and fishing with Arturo
Arturo hooked us up with our fishing trip and paddle boarding adventure. We caught 11 Crevalle Jack and 1 Red Snapper. One of the best fishing experiences I've ever had. We also went cliff jumping while we were paddle boarding on a separate day. The shop was very accommodating to all of our needs. We will definitely will be back to visit our friend Arturo and Travis!

Our kids loved it!
Patricia's was great. We had a small group, with 2 kids aged 9 and 11, to one instructor for the early morning surf lessons. Got up and surfing in no time. The kids could check out board and wake boards at their leisure and we paid the tab at the end of our vacation. Patricia and her crew are the best. We will be back.

Very accommodating, helpful and convenient!
We rented boards the first few days of our trip, and really enjoyed the ease of getting boards, keeping the tab system that we payed off at the end of the week, and the information from Patty. We didn't take lessons, but we did end up doing a fishing trip with them and had a great time!

Pesimo servicio ( awful service)
¡Awful service! My girlfriend and I take the paddle board lessons and the instructor left us alone in several occasions during the lesson and at the end he get out of the sea leaving us behind and that's when with no supervising he just scream at us to get outside by ourselves but when we try to get out we suffer an accident on wich my girlfriend suffered an injury on her nose so we have to go to medical service. The instructor was very agressive because we didn't left him the tip he want,we went to medical service ourselves,lifeguards were most concerned about us. They told us that those guys were very irresponsables.

wolf in sheeps clothing
The owner's son, Dylan, is a rude and obnoxious surfer full of arrogance and machismo. He threatens visitors while he surfs and is unwilling to share his "adopted" home. I wouldn't give this place one Peso.
