Vida Surf was great!
My 8 year old daughter went out with Luis and had a great time. He was super conscious of the waves and when it was best for us to come meet with him. He was careful with her at first and I could see the longer she rode with him the more comfortable she became. Would definitely recommend and will be booking more!

Best surf lessons!
We had a party of four, three who had never surfed and Luis got everyone to catch at least a couple of waves despite poor conditions. He was a great teacher and didn’t waste time on things we would never use again. I told him our goal was to simply get everyone up and to have fun and he made it happen!!

Luis was great!
He had all the patience in the world for my ocean fears, and helped me relax and focus on the task at hand - the surf! I’m one of those “forever beginners” and Luis gave me very clear directions. His ability to communicate his surf skills are impressive and never dismissive! I highly recommend a class with Luis!

Had a wonderful experience surfing as a beginner. Luis was a motivating instructor and taught me how to enjoy the surf ride in the wave. He was an excellent communicator and took the time to make the 1:1 coaching happen for me even though he’s usually off on Sundays (as this was the only day I could make it). He also recommended a great local spot where I could grab a bite after the lesson.

The best surf trip!
Luis is a great teacher, teaching you not just wave riding skills, but also helping you think about breathing and entering the surfing mindset.

He was patient, gracious and attentive to my energy level. You will be in good hands with him. Can't wait to practice more and then come back for more instructions.

He is also very upfront about effort needed to get to and from beaches, if doing something other than Sayulita's main beach.

If you want to learn to surf in Sayulita, Luis is a fantastic person to help you do that. And he's the kind of person who picks up random beach trash because he loves the environment.
