Surfing is one of the most storied and loved water sports in the world. Everyone wants to learn to surf and try their hand at the big waves. It's so exciting and so much fun!  Of course, everyone has to learn to surf somewhere, so why not sunny Puerto Vallarta? We now offer surfing lessons for beginners!

We'll start our surfing lesson by studying conditions for that day and learning how the tide, swell direction and intervals between waves all affect the decision on what surfing location to visit that day.  We'll learn some basic safety tips and ocean awareness, then learn proper stretching techniques for surfing - very important!

You will learn basic surfing techniques while still on shore, including paddling, push up, and standing up, then head for the shallow water to start catching small surf and getting the feel for surfing.  After a short break, we will return to the water to try some larger waves and get you on your feet surfing.  All this in the bright sunshine of Puerto Vallarta!
