Surf Camp Packages
Come to our WildMex Surf Camp in Sayulita, Mexico and take surfing lessons with our friendly local instructors, improving day by day in beautiful Sayulita and Punta Mita. We have different surfing camps in Sayulita and Punta Mita, with options to suit everyone, whether you’re a beginner surfer or you’ve been surfing for years, and options for every budget too.
With year-round waves, a dozen different surf breaks to choose from, quality equipment and qualified staff, this is by far the best beginner and intermediate surfing school in Mexico. For beginners and intermediate surfers, the long mellow waves in the different breaks around Sayulita are perfect for learning, while the long green waves will allow more advanced surfers to perfect their technique.
Our Sayulita and Punta Mita camps are available for everyone from first timers to regular surfers. We keep our guests with the same instructor all week so you can benefit from continuous feedback and coaching, and so that the instructors can pick the best surf break for you depending on the conditions.And in your time off you can enjoy everything that Sayulita has to offer, or just chill in quieter Punta Mita.
Consistent waves, warm water, and village charm make Sayulita the ideal backdrop for the ultimate surf experience!
Surf Camp Beginners
Newbies will learn how to pop up correctly and catch their own waves, beginning in the whitewater and progressing onto green waves. Depending on your progress, you will have a 10-15 minute land lesson on the first few days to practice techniques. Then it will be time to hit the water with your qualified bilingual instructors' help. Your instructor will keep an eye on your progress and make sure you're at the surf break with the best conditions for your ability.
Surf Camp Intermediates
Surfing guides will coach you throughout the week, ensuring you are able to improve your surfing. You will explore different breaks, receive local tips from guides, and continuously improve your surfing with your coach’s help. Guests can try different boards from our collection of over 300 surfboards, meet great people and enjoy a worry free surf holiday. When conditions and ability levels allow, we may also go to boat accessible surf breaks.
Surf Camp for all ability levels
Wildmex surf camps focus on two main principles: safety and fun. We ensure that all students have a solid grounding in surfing and water safety before we head out into the waves. And we continuously assess your ability to make sure that you are surfing on the right breaks to make your lessons are as safe and fun as possible. All our instructors are qualified, bilingual and lots of fun!
