The Surf camp

Our Surf Camp Mexico options are located on Mexico's pacific coast with easy access to over 14 surf spots from 11 surf camps.

The surfing season is generally better in the winter (October - April), when north swells come and hit the coast. In the summer (June - September) the wave conditions are a bit more uncertain so it's not a good time for experienced surfers, and the temperatures can get really high.

A great advantage about the area is that due to its geographical positioning, no matter where the swell is coming from, if you are with an experienced guide, you will find a great wave to ride.

Dry season (October to June) is the best season to visit this part of Mexico, however there is surf year round, and if you are OK with some afternoon showers, the rainy season (July till Sept) is great time for a quiet holiday.

The water tends to be warm most of the year, all you need is a surfboard, shorts and a rash guard; however, from Jan till March, wet suit tops are recommended, and are provided by the surf school for guests at no extra cost

Surf school

Our surf schools usually holds lessons at the main beach close to your surf camp. However there are also surf packages linked to the surf camps where they have a surf school onsite.

Depending on your level of surfing, the surf instructors will guide you and help you to improve your surfing skills. As a goal for first timers, the focus is that guests will learn enough so that by the end of the first week they will be able to go out and surf by themselves.

For all surf lessons the surf school work with a maximum 1:4 instructor:guests ratio.

We guarantee that after one week of surf school the complete beginner will be able to surf and the experienced surfer will have improved greatly.

The following is included for students attending the surf school:

  • 2-4 hour surf instruction/day, 6 days per week
  • All surf equipment needed
  • Surfari

    Surfari is a great option for experienced surfers and some of our surf schools offer this option. Every day there is a different swell, a different wind etc. This doesn't matter if you book a Surfari with us. Every day you will be accompanied by a professional local surf guide who will show you the best breaks of the region, places that just the locals know, taking you to discover new surf spots where you can enjoy perfect waves surrounded by beautiful untouched nature.

    Everyday your surf guide will bring you to where the best waves are depending on daily conditions. There is always the option to do a surf trip to one of the 14 surf spots in the area in the morning and then surf right at Sayulita's main break in the afternoon.

    The surfaris offered is perfect for intermediate surfers who want to develop their surfing skills by experiencing lots of long easy rolling point breaks. There are also a couple of beach breaks with a bit more power for advanced surfers. However this location is not suitable for really advanced surfers who demand extreme waves.

    Most of the breaks are a short drive from town, and they involve a 5-10 minute hike to get to the beach.

    The following is included in the surfari

    • Accommodation - Standard or upgraded
    • 2-4 hour surfari/ day, 6 days per week
    • All surf equipment needed
    • Transportation to the best wave of the day
