It was pretty much my first time surfing and my experience with Puerto surf lessons couldn't have been any better. Most lessons I had an instructor called Juan, he was brilliant!! He was a perfect mix of kindness and challenging me to achieve more each day. As well other instructors Miguel and Celestino (the owner) were equally as encouraging and... More

Though we weren't interested in surfing, our friends were taking lessons and staying here so Celestina and Melinda welcomed us to stay in their lovely and very affordable surf hotel. There are only three suites in the hotel and while the two upper ones were larger than ours, I liked ours best: compact, clean and with an outdoor kitchen that... More

I wrote them when I arrived at puerto at the evening and they really flexible put me on their list of the students. These lessons is not about how many students they have or how big or popular they are but they needs to take care about the each student and the personal care its really visible. I felt really...

We just ended an incredible day with the team at Puerto Surf lessons. Melinda was super helpful on the phone and we spent 30 minutes training before we hit the waves. 2 adults and 4 kids (ages 8, 10, 12, 14) all got up and the staff (who all got in the water) kept a very close eye on the... More

We took 2 classes of surfing at Puerto Surf Lessons. Those were our first classes of surf. Our trainers Celestino, Aaron and Jesus taught us how to stand up on the board, how to enter the water with the board safely, how to overcome the waves. Trainers were accompanying us during the whole classes to advise and help out in... More

If you're in the Puerto Escondido area, you HAVE to take surf lessons with Puerto Surf Lessons. I've had some lessons with other people/schools before and none of them came even close to what you get here. They really do everything to make sure that every single student has a great experience. Apart from making sure you have fun and... More

My two children took lessons with Celestino and Jesus. We are from the Midwest (South Dakota), so obviously no surf experience. The kids had a blast-and got up on the board a ton! The energy and patience from the instructors blew me away. My 13 and 7 year old loved it so much they returned for a second lesson the... More

I highly recommend booking your surf lesson with Puerto Surf Lessons!!! Celestino was super professional, picks you up and drop you off at your hotel and really focuses on taking his time and teaching you the correct theory before jumping in the water. Not only was I able to get up on the board the first time but I was... More

All five inexperienced people in our group were able to stand and ride a wave at the end of the lesson. There were three instructors for the five students, so we did not have to wait long between attempts. If you want to catch your own wave in la punta it would probably take more than one lesson, but if... More
