Mauricio is an awesome surf instructor and does a great job of tailoring his teaching and feedback for a variety of skill levels! Even if you're just looking to rent a board, he is right on the beach, so no need to carry your board from town!

I returned last week from Montezuma, where I did a 5-day yoga and surf package through Montezuma Yoga. The afternoons spent surfing were by far the best part of the trip! This was my first time surfing, and I was quite nervous on our first day. After just a few minutes into the first lesson, I felt reassured by Mauricio's... More

Bottom line: Mauricio is experienced, FUN and kind. He always has your best interest and safety in mind. Whether your a novice surfer or not- he is the best! Super convenient too- he meets you at your hotel and you take a beautiful walk through town and along the beach (about 40 mins), don't have to carry boards and gear... More

I cannot recommend High Tide Surf School more highly. Learning to surf has always been a dream of mine. My friend and I booked a yoga/surf package in Montezuma, and had 5 days of instruction. It was by far the highlight of the trip, and truly a dream come true. Mauricio is a gifted instructor, to say the least. As... More

I came to Montezuma on the surf and yoga package through Montezuma Yoga. The package with High tide surf school was a perfect addition to a dreamy week in this lovely town. During the five day package, my first two days were semi-private with a lovely solo traveler from Russia. There is nothing like having your own private surf instructor!... More

For someone who had 1 surfing lesson in her entire life, I can say with confidence that I can tackle the waves by myself after what felt like a fun 5-day surfing bootcamp with my instructor, Mauricio. Boards provided, Rashguard provided, some pics taken, lots of fruit eaten, monkeys seen, waves caught and wipeouts too! I took part in the... More

I did the yoga and surf package with Montezuma Yoga in March 2016. I had an unbelievable experience! I was slightly nervous traveling alone (as a 25-year old female), but I met the most wonderful people through yoga and surfing. My favorite part my trip was definitely the surfing. Mauricio is the absolute best, and I highly recommend taking lessons... More

Mauricio and his crew are the real deal, the originals. If you're looking for hands-on teaching for any level this is the place to go. Group sizes are never more than a 3 to 1 ratio giving you a lot of personal attention. We did four days of lessons but wished we had more! All I want to do now... More

Mauricio is very professional, knowledgable and patient. I'm a true beginner but had developed serious interest in surfing after 4 sessions with Mauricio. Highly recommend!

I've always wanted to surf and now I can say that I can thanks to Mauricio! I can't even begin to say how much I enjoyed my time surfing in Montezuma with him and the group. Mauricio was an excellent instructor and all around good dude. After learning from him I was confident and good enough at surfing to go... More
