San Poncho Day Trip

Sayulita isn't the only spot around for amazing surfings. Escape the crowds in Sayulita and experience the quaint nearby down of San Pancho. Just 20 minutes by car away, this similarly quaint town has significantly fewer tourists and offers similar, and often better breaks for surfing. No need to fight a crowded lineup trying to catch a wave in !

Board Rental

No instructor, no frills, just the board you need for the time you need.

Rentals are by the hour or half-day for a discounted rate. All rentals include fins and a leash, wetsuits can be rented for an additional $10 per session.

Surf rentals can be done by the hour or by the half day, depending on your needs! You're also welcome to pay for an hour, and then keep the session going if it feels good and the waves are right for you. We don't charge you for time you're not out with the board, but we will of course have to charge extra if you decide to keep going beyond the original timeframe.
