My family, 2 teenagers and my husband had an amazing experience with David and his thoughtful team. An expert in his field along with being an amazing teacher and host, with a ton of information to share. My kids learned so much, they left feeling like they wanted more. David is a cosmopolitan fella, with a real respect for his environment and his local community. My kids are happy-tired. We will come back again, and would highly recommend.

David and his team are great instructors who are committed to help you surf. More importantly, they are really good people and fun to talk with. They are kind, funny, sincere, and hard working. All three of my kids said this was the highlight of their trip to Sayulita.

Patient, positive and super knowledgeable - not only about surfing but local history - that’s David! Apart from the surfing lesson, which was top notch, David’s just a super cool guy with a super cool story. You can tell he loves the sport and it’s infectious. Thanks, David, for the amazing memories!

We had an awesome time surfing with David and Jairo! The on-land instruction was very thorough and we found it extremely helpful in the water. They wanted us to have a good time and be safe out in the water. All of us were able to catch some great waves and we left wanting to come back for more! We could not recommend this experience enough and can’t wait for our next Sayulita surfing adventure!

Our family’s surfing lesson with David was a cool experience. In a town where everyone is trying to give you a surfing lesson, David is the real deal! He runs a real business, he’s one of two certified instructors in all of Sayulita, and the thing we liked most was he didn’t seem to have any schedule outside of making sure we had a good time. David was extremely personable with great stories and gave us a thorough and helpful lesson before we hit the waves. My husband, two teen daughters and I had one surfing experience before this - Costa Rica - where the waves were easier than the Bunny Hill. On this day, the waves looked more daunting than they felt, and we worked hard! David and his co-instructor, Jaero, were helpful - and also pushed us to feel the waves on our own. No babying! Afterwards, they took us to a great little taco place that had magical hibiscus tea - a delicious lunch after a good workout and fun experience overall!

It was such great day! David and his crew were amazing. Started out by checking out the water and David asked us what we were looking for. Since we are beginners we chose the easier waves.. after a quick tutorial we were out on the water. Catching waves in no time. We were shown great techniques and was able to stand up on our first or second waves. Finished the day crushing carnitas at a true local spot. Such a memorable experience! Would recommend to anyone!
