Reviews of Surfing with Jose

Surfing Lessons and Tours Have Been Reviewed on Trip Advisor:

"Good people, amazing instruction, local knowledge, nice surfing beach and not crowded. I'm a beginner surfer - I had taken a couple lessons in the past. I booked 5 lessons with Vallarta and I learned a ton and had FUN. Jose (Pepe) is an amazing surfer but more importantly he is a great teacher and a super nice guy. He made me feel confident and is very encouraging with lots of positive and constructive feedback, and I more than got my money's worth. Long lessons were followed by lunch at delicious local places. They even arranged for a photographer to take some photos from the water - it was inexpensive and a great souvenir. I'd like to give Vallarta Surf Guide more stars!!"

"I booked online at 6pm on a Saturday night to take a lesson the next morning. I received a confirmation with clear and concise details within an hour. The instructor Jose, was wonderful! He picked us up and he was friendly and personable. He is a talented teacher who is full of knowledge about his craft -- and he was happy answer all of my questions. I was lucky to have a lesson alone and he let me surf for hours as he patiently wade in the water by my side. Afterwards we went to lunch at a local restaurant and got a genuine small town Mexico experience. I've wanted to try surfing for years and I couldn't have even imagined that my first lesson would have been as wonderful as it was! I'm very grateful to Jose and Rosie for providing me with such a pleasant and seamless experience!! I beyond recommend Vallarta Surf Guide -- the price was good and the service was outstanding! PS - It was also nice that my boyfriend was able to come along. He wanted to surf but had a sore ankle so he couldn't that day. But he came with us and hung out on the beach."

"Rosie was great at setting up the event, keeping in touch with us prior to our day out and answering questions I had. Myself and my three sons 29.27,26 all spent the day with Jose at Punta Mita. We have all surfed before but needed some direction. Jose was very knowledgeable with surfing and helped all of us have a great day! My sons really enjoyed hanging out with him and still talk about the great day we had. We stopped for lunch on the way back at a nice Mexican restaurant with great views, relaxing atmosphere. Shrimp quesadilla was off the hook! Will definitely call Rosie and Jose next time were there! Thanks again for the great day!"

"My 14 year daughter and I met with Jose for 2 great days of surfing with Jose. (Rosie was super handling the reservations and the logistics) Jose is great teacher with a local vibe who relates well with both the younger and older. You could tell immediately he's respected in the local surf scene, but is patient with surfers like us with only modest experience. I highly recommend his agency for a personal, safe, and authentic surf experience. Good times!"

"We started our vacation surfing with Jose and Job and it couldn't have been better! Jose picked us up at agreed location since Nuevo Vallerta has a few restrictions if you are not be picked up by a cab. It was easy and Jose was right on time. We have 3 active kids age 20, 19 and 15. We are not surfers, but these guys made us feel like we were by the end of the day! Everyone was able to get up and enjoy some challenging waves throughout the day. The guys were warm, funny, easy to talk to and definitely good at what they do. We enjoyed a lunch afterwards like old friends! (best tacos we had the entire week) We will definitely be contacting them next time we visit."

As a family of 4 with varying degrees of surfing experience, Jose and Hub were both amazing. My 8 year old daughter who is cautious around the ocean and had never surfed before loved it so much we booked a second day at the end of the first session. They picked us up as discussed and drove us back to our resort. The whole experience end to end was fantastic.
