I arranged for lessons for my family and a large group of my extended family decided to join us. Even though they specialize with small groups, they took on our enormous group without any issues. Miguel, Patrick and the group of instructors were outstanding. It was an incredible experience. Every member of our group commented how this was one of... More

If you want to learn to surf - or your kids want to learn - get Miguel to show you how. Best experience ever - he's amazing and a great surfing champion himself. This is the second year we have asked him to teach our kids and he's great. Don't waste your time on the group sessions - you won't... More

Miguel was fantastic! If you want the authentic experience this is the place. We had an amazing all inclusive lesson, so accommodating. If you want one on one attention and the true Mexican surf experience Coral Reef is the place. They embody the surfing spirit and share that with you through their knowledge and passion for surfing. Forget the surf... More

I visited Puerto Vallarta for Semana Santa holiday. I got 7'10" rental board and Patrick took me the local surf spot. It was easy and relaxing point and I liked it a lot. Patrick is really nice boy and good surfer. I am sure that I will come back to visit the shop and see Patrick again! Kevin Shiba

I have a family of four (wife, boy (15) and girl (12). We just traveled to Nuevo Valllarta for second time. Thought we'd do something more than hang at resort beach this time. After looking on TripAdvisor and seeing reviews for Coral Reef Surf Shop, decided to give it a try. Emailed with David (owner) a couple times with questions... More

My family and myself have recently moved to Puerto Vallarta. I decided to take up surfing and after going out a half a dozen times I decided to get a lesson. My wife was also interested in trying so it was a date. I was told by a local sufer to try out Coral Reef for the lessons. Miguel was... More

I rent a house in Bay of Banderas area of Mexico with a group of friends every year or two. Each time we go, we rent boards through David and the Coral Reef Surf Shop. The boards are good quality and the service has always been great. David's son Miguel drops the boards off at the house we rent shortly... More

The best surf lessons that I've ever seen - by a local surf champion - who speaks better English than I do :). The lessons were one on one and our teen was able to stand on the first try with Miguel's help. Very patient and professional. Excellent - TRY them you'll like it!

My husband and I visited Bucerias on our honeymoon and wanted to learn how to surf. I found Coral Reef Surf Shop on Trip Advisor and contacted them via email. David, the shop owner, was so helpful and very timely on responding to all my inquiries. We met Miguel, son of David, at the shop where he hooked us up... More
