I was lucky enough to surf for 4 days with Mauricio! He was so fun and patient. He got me standing up, and by the end I was out there on my own. I would highly recommend you take the afternoon and surf with him. The beach is stunning too!

Mauricio was an amazing surf instructor!! He was patient and so knowledgeable about the technique to help all levels. I went with 3 other girls and we just had a smile from ear to ear the entire time in the water. He assisted us in catching the waves and gave us personal feedback before each wave. It was my favorite... More

The lesson I had with Mauricio was a great experience. He is a very good, patient teacher and had me standing on a board in no time. He explains himself very well in either English or Spanish and puts in a lot of time and effort for every individual involved. A really fun day.

I had a surflesson with a different surfschool in Montezuma and was so disappointed, the receptionist at my hostel recommended Mauricio and I'm so glad he did! I've been to a surfcamp before but this is def the best instructor I have. Good tips, and he gets u to push urself. Wish I had found him before my last day.... More

Mauricio is the perfect surf teacher: super nice, calm, patient and supportive. He certainly knows what he does. As a beginner, I had a great time and could improve my surfing - thanks to Mauricio. Muchas gracias y hasta luego!

It was my first time on a surf board and I couldn't believe that I could stand up at the second wave - due to Mauricios great instructions and patience! I spent one week in Montezuma with a surf-and-yoga-package and I would definitely do it again immediately if I could and I highly recommend Mauricio as a surf teacher. After... More

Spent one week in Montezuma with a Surf-and-Yoga package deal. Can only recommend High Tide / Mauricio for surfing. He is v professional, patient (thanks!) and great to improve your surfing skills. That's the kind of teacher you want to have. I had a great time - thanks again!! =)

Also Randall is super nice and knows how to make you stand up:). Thank you for that experience. I would recommend Mauricio to everyone who wants... More
