Oceano Adventures Surf Camp Mexico Program

Arrival day

On your day of arrival, the taxi service can pick you up at the airport (optional) to introduce you to beautiful little town of Sayulita. Immediately, you will fall in love with the open and friendly atmosphere; once well settled in your place of stay, it is recommended that you discover the lovely handmade artwork markets and shops, to enjoy afterwards a delicious Mexican welcome dinner in town.

The camp starts the next day in downtown Sayulita where you will meet your instructor and will get your gear set up. There are different kinds of boards according to different skill levels. Once you are ready, you will be taken to Sayulita's main beach just two blocks away.

Day 1

On the first day, you start with an introduction on the beach to learn about the basic principles, gear, ocean conditions, spot, surf etiquette, and the proper way to paddle, pop up, and ride waves. After this you will jump into the water to practice what you learned before with your instructor, to catch waves for one and half hours. Once you complete this, you can take a rest and come back later to the shop to pick up the board and use it as long as your arms allow you.

Day 2

You will be taken on a 4x4 vehicle and go around the coast to look for the best surf spot to continue your training. South of Sayulita have Punta de Mita where you will find different breaks to do the second step. This day you will paddle out to learn how to read the ocean conditions and choose the best wave to your level. This will take around four hours. After this, you will go back to Sayulita where you can take a rest and, like the day before, pick up your board to keep practicing in Sayulita.

Day 3 - 5

These days will be an adventure of exploring different surft spots and practice your skills while taking into account the conditions of each spot: height, type of breaking, velocity of the wave, and left of right-hand wave. "La Lancha" is one of the best surf spots around with many points and beach breaks, where everyone of your group will find the perfect condition to your actual surf level. In this part of your training you must be ready for bigger waves, the instructor will be with you all the time in the water to help to choose your wave and be safe. If necessary the instructor will give you a little push to catch your wave easier, and step by step you'll be able to do it yourself.

Day 6

You will put all together to enjoy a nice last surf session as safe as can be. You will be ready to choose the perfect spot for your surf level. You will paddle out to reach the line to be ready to choose and catch your own waves; the instructor will assist you when needed but the waves will be yours!

Surf spots

Sayulita's main beach got perfect mellow waves for beginners at the right side. With its sandy bottom, it's an excellent spot to practice your pop up and posture.

At the Point, you'll find bigger waves to ride on the right; fun and challenge for all levels are guaranteed. When there are bigger waves at the Point, you will also find a good surf spot at the left side of the beach and just two-minute walking distance.

Waves break at the left and often this spot is less busy than the Point. Waves can break in the bay all year round with the best months being December through early April, as that is when the north swells hit.

La Lancha

This is a paradise of white sand beach surrounded by tropical jungle in the Riviera Nayarit. Accessible either by sea or land, La Lancha offers excellent surf break for beginners and experienced surfers which make this destination with its beautiful landscape an unforgettable place.

El Anclote

Punta de Mita is one of the places known worldwide for surfing and El Anclote is one of the best surf spots, just a 20-minute drive south from Sayulita. It has suitable right-hand waves for all levels especially for lovers of longboards and long rides that take you all the way to the beach.

Burros

This beautiful beach is one of the most favorited surf spots in the area not without reason. It offers nice surf sessions for beginners when the waves are small and epic surf sessions for intermediates and advanced surfers when bigger.

Punto Burros offers right-hand waves by a rocky reef break. Rocks are covered in algae and two to three feet under sea level, so it's not a big threat. The waves are fairly consistent through the year with the best period in winter months.

La Caleta

La Caleta is a hidden surf spot near Chacala, about one-hour north of Sayulita. Best way to reach this place is by boat. In a small bay, waves break fairly consistent on the left. Intermediates and advanced surfers will surely enjoy the left-hand waves; the bigger the cleaner they get. On a good day, they give you rides with the length of a football field!
