Highly recommend Vallarta Surf Guide for any group looking to spend a day surfing in a great location. Everyone in our group has tried surfing at least once before, so Jose spent the entire time in the water with us to make sure everyone was able to stand up and ride the waves all the way in. He picked us... More

Jose was an amazing surf instructor. He is super friendly, picks you up from your hotel, and will work with you until you're dead tired. My surfing improved dramatically over the two days I worked with Jose, as well as learning a lot about Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay through Jose's knowledge. Highly recommended experience for people interested in learning... More

My fiance and I had such a blast with Jose and our surfing adventure! He took great care of us, while making the day exciting, safe, and extremely memorable. From start to end of the surf day we had fun, learned a lot, and wished we could have spent a few more days surfing with Jose. I would highly recommend... More

I have been wanting to learn to surf for years but was dubious of my balancing abilities (I am VERY clumsy) but I stood up on the FIRST wave when my husband and I took lessons with Javier. I even rode a couple waves all the way into shore. By the end of the day my husband (who is a... More

We took our staff and their partners to PV on a well-deserved retreat and everyone chose surfing for one of our team building activities. So glad we selected Vallarta Surf Guide and had Javier to guide us. Even though we had a diverse group - surf experience, physical skill and age - each of us came away having developed a... More

I've been surfing 25 years and was going to be in Puerto Vallarta for 2 days so I decided to book a "surf tour". I just needed someone to take me to some of the best local surf spots since I didn't know the area. Javier & Mike picked me up, brought a good selection of boards for me to... More

This was our first time surfing and it was so much fun! Javier was our guide. He picked us up at our resort and brought us to a fabulous sandy beach with great waves. He was an excellent teacher and very dedicated - he made sure we knew there was "no time limit" and that we could stay out there... More

We are SO glad we decided to go with Vallarta Surf guide and get an authentic one on one local surf experience! We saw the surf tour you could book with our hotel and it was a huge group with one guide- crowded on a tour bus- not our cup of tea! Instead we got picked up by a young... More
