We had a great experience with Gustavo and Snapper Surf School! Our instructors were Omar and Otto and they were very patient and supportive with all of us. You could tell they had a respect for the water and were so intuned with how to navigate us into the waves. Especially when they got big! We highly recommend them!

Gustavo had his hands full with myself and daughter. Both newbies. Awesome experience. We are going home to spend time on the Great Lakes and coming back next year for more lessons. Who knew you could start surfing at 51!! Totally stoked!🤙 highly recommend this school.

Was a total beginner but super keen to learn to surf. Teachers are very knowledgeable and friendly. By the second lesson I felt comfortable enough on the waves to go out alone - they provided a board rental too. Best value for money.

Gustavo was awesome! It was my first time ever surfing and it was not the easiest thing to get. He was patient, supportive, laidback and easy to connect with. I finally got up on the board and was so excited, even if I didn't stay up there very long. I had a blast! I only wish I could have worked with him a second time.

I'm writing this review for my husband Jeff, who took a surf lesson at the beautiful Playa Avellanas with Gustavo. We were grateful Gustavo picked us up where we were staying and took us to the beach, where Gustavo gave Jeff a knowledge-packed and fun lesson just before sunset. I hung out at Lola's, had a Lolajito cocktail, and watched the surfers. Gustavo was chill and fun to talk to, and we had a great afternoon!
