I had the opportunity to learn how to surf with David and Gerry. It was a great experience! The class with them is an excellent option. They were always in communication upon my arrival to the town; they also were very kind and took care of all the details. The best part is that they know the sport and the bay perfectly, so they prepare the right boards and take you to the best beach depending on your level and the sea conditions. It was my first time and I was able to enjoy the feeling of riding the waves. Stay away from crowded or rocky beaches. If you are going to visit Riviera Nayarit, don't hesitate to look for David and Gerry and get ready for the fun.

David was an excellent surf instructor and tour guide for Sayulita and surrounding area. His English was great and he was super friendly. Although there weren't great waves during our surf lesson, we appreciated that David took us to a nice local spot with smaller crowds compared to Sayulita Beach or La Lancha. (We were able to return another day and catch a ton :) ) Highly recommend David's surf lessons!

Our surf experience was excellent. David was nonstop smiles and jokes. He’s basically a local celebrity because everyone waved as he drove us out of town to the surf spot. David is an expert and did a great job of sharing his knowledge with us. We had specific requests, and he customized the experience for us. Highly recommend.

David and Jerry were awesome. They provided transportation, and David had cool local knowledge to pass along during the drive. The beach we went to was beautiful, nobody else in the water. We did a beginner lesson, and his tips were very helpful. Brought us to a taco shop on the way back. Super good carnitas. Super fun day and cool guy to go surf with.

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.
