My fiancé and I learned how to surf with Yoyo for 9 days. This is not your typical "surf lesson" like in Hawaii, where they just push you into the wave and you try and stand up. Yoyo teaches you how to look at the waves. Find the spot to be in and then ride the waves. He is very... More

I stayed in Arica for some days and really enjoyed going surfing with Yoyo. It's really easy for beginners to learn surfing there and Yoyo is a great teacher!

Magic Chile If you visit Arica and leave without calling Magic Chile Surf for a lesson, you haven't fully experienced Arica. Yoyo's mix of thoughtful, patient, and custom-fit guidance will guarantee an amazing day on the waves whether you're an experienced surfer or it's your first time paddling out. You'll also be sure to laugh a lot and learn about... More
