Amazing location, teachers and accommodation, my main teacher Chori, was also excellent but his name didn't show ... Spanish teaching was also excellent

"Surf haven for beginners"
The hands-on approach of the instructors ensures you get the most out of every lesson. They go through various adjustments and fixes and address any issues you may have with your surfing. At the end of every week, every sits down and has a family-style dinner while your surfing technique is broken down into scalable steps.

We had the most incredible time at Oasis and can't wait to come back.
Sol, Roger and their beautiful stallion Trueno was warm and welcomed us into the Oasis family for a fortnight.
Sol and Juan were patient and creative Spanish teachers who made our beginner's class interesting and useful.
Our surfs were lots of fun courtesy of the gorgeous Patula, enthusiastic David, friendly Seabas, attentive/ helpful Cris and of course the zinc-loving warm-up king: Juan!
It's more than just a surf and Spanish resort - our experience releasing baby turtles was amazing too!
The food, beaches and people made Puerto Escondido our favourite place in Mexico. It's easy to navigate as a tourist, without the hassle and crowds of other coastal locations like Cancun.
P.s. Try the cammaron tacos at the "smoked fish" taco place near the school! You won't regret it.
