I went to Puerto with a group of 16 students that were studying abroad. We wanted to learn how to surf but didn't all speak great English. Luckily our program director knew about Julio's program where they give lessons in English and Spanish. When Julio met up with our group he was really generous and even helped transport some of our group members to the beach. He started by giving us a basic lesson on the beach and really made sure that every single person in the group was understanding what he was showing us. When we paddled out into the water we felt comfortable and safe. There was a group of 3 instructors with us and they all had big cheerful smiles on ready to help us catch our first wave. When Julio and the other instructors were out in the water with us I could tell they were there to help us actually experience surfing, not just get paid for the surf lesson. They really did all the little things to make everyone felt comfortable and helped everyone catch a wave. We even went back the next day for another lesson. If you are going to Puerto Escondido you won't find a better surf lesson than the one you can get with Julio and his team at Zicazteca!
