What you'll do

We will meet at Mita Surf House in the town of Punta de Mita (we can arrange transportation here if necessary). Depending on the conditions for the day we will decide which local break to go surf. We'll get our rashguards and boards. After a 15 minute land lesson on the beach, we will make our way to the shoreline and enter the water. I will help you learn proper surf etiquette for getting along with your fellow surfers as well as how to read waves and correct positioning. I'll make sure you stand up during your first lesson and once you master the pop-up we'll move along to more advanced techniques. Safety is my number one priority, but I also make sure we have FUN and that you walk away feeling like you have learned something new about the ocean, surfing, Mexico or yourself!

Where you'll be

Most frequently I like to surf at La Lancha beach which is about a ten minute drive from the town and then a 10 minute walk through the jungle. As it is not accessible by car, this exquisite beach is more secluded that others in the area. We also have some other options for surfing that we can discuss based on your experience level and current conditions including Burros, Stinkys and El Faro.

If you want a much more personalized and special surf experience vs the surf school type experience in town (way more crowded). This is for you! Amazing value for what you get! Luis was patient and lighthearted as we tried to figure it out. We caught on somewhat quickly and had a blast! We would do it again (and plan to!) next time we’re here!

Luis is an amazing instructor! He gives you all the fundamentals needed to have a very safe and enjoyable experience in the water and makes sure you're also having a great time riding waves. He adapts his teaching to your specific goals and skill level. He's so much more than just "pushing you into the wave" like some other instructors do. He actually shares valuable information to help you read and feel the wave so that you gain enough confidence to be out there on your own if you chose to do so. I highly recommend him! He's also a very friendly and chill guy. Fun to hang out with! Thanks so much for your help and patience Luis :-)

What a wonderful way to ease into our vacation with some local knowledge and fun! My husband and I were coming from Sayulita and Kate and Luis made it very convenient to travel from there. Luis and Andres are very experienced coaches that made both me and my husband feel welcomed and comfortable. The beautiful beach, without the high rises and condos made for a wonderful backdrop to our surfing experience. Highly recommend! Would book another experience with Luis and Kate in a heartbeat.

Wonderful teacher! Luis gave both my partner and I personalized teaching based on our different skill levels. Would highly recommend for beginners to experienced surfers who may need to brush up on their skills.

Luis was super professional and knowledgeable. I learned more in a few hours with him than I had in a week of surfing on my own. Awesome experience and location, he and his wife were incredibly friendly and accommodating. I will be sure to stop by Luis’ surf shop next time I’m in punto mita.

I've taken surf lessons before and I've tried to fake it on my own, but Luis provided unique advice that finally got me standing and catching awesome waves.
