Elias is personable and experienced. Wants you to enjoy yourself. Was quite willing to work at my pace. If your in Mazatlan this is a must do. Instructors and students all had a blast. Mike L

Elias picked us up right outside our cruise port and took us to Playa Bruja where we got wetsuits and did some practice on land. It was a totally different story in the water, but SO MUCH FUN. Eduardo was with us in the water the whole time and we all stood up at least 3 times. We were right by a great seaside restaurant and loved spending the day on the beach!

What a great guy, Elisa is amazing. He remembered us after 3 years. He taught my 56 year old boy friend how to surf. He is patient, enthusiastic and knows what he is doing.
I hope to be able to help Elias get more business this way...
Easy booking by email, transfer the initial fund to hold the time of the lesson and he can be trusted.

Spent a day with Elias of JAH Surf School. Easy to contact ahead of time to arrange lessons, board rentals or even a surf trip by email or phone. I'm 66 years old and have surfed but not much lately. Elias went through a warm up and the basics with me before we headed out to the water. He is fluent in English so there are no communication problems and very easy to get along with. The surf was pretty good sized and had great shape. I had a great time in the water Elias was very helpful and has such an encouraging and positive attitude. After I was wore out Elias went back out and surfed on his own. Let's just say he can rip. Thanks Elias see you in November. Highly recommend JAH Surf School for lessons or rentals.

Elias is a great host. He picked us up from the cruise ship, trucked us across town, got us some rash guards, gave us lessons, and got us out in the water! He was out there with us helping stabilize a shaky board, give a little push, or even just being a coxswain yelling, "PADDLE! PADDLE! PADDLE!" If you're looking for a great way to spend a day or even a few hours in Mazatlan, give Elias a call to take you surfing.
