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.

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

Had 5 weeks in Punta Mita surfing. Hired two boards from David & Miguel. Boards were delivered & collected to Punta MIta by David at no cost. Miguel took me to the airport to collect my son when he arrived a couple of weeks later. & drove us back via the surf shop to pick up a board. David is... More

Coral Reef Surf Shop is the place to take surfing lessons from or to rent or buy equipment. This was the 3rd year in a row that Miguel from Coral Reef provided excellent surfing instruction. We can't say enough about the professionalism and care that Coral Reef offers to their clients. Super experienced small group (one on one or two)... More

There's not a better deal anywhere. Whether your a beginner or a well traveled surfer I recommend Coral Reef handling your surfing experience. We hired Miguel for three days to take us around the area surfing. For what it costs to rent a car we had our own personal surf guide with great board selection. Not to mention, you get... More
