Contact pro surfer "Pony" of Jah Surf School in advance to book your lessons.
There are other surf companies for surfing at Playa Brujas; however, Pony is super friendly, great with kids and speaks English well. Check the swell and water conditions before planning your day to prevent a cancellation “let-down” for the kids.
If you want a more adventurous surf trip, this activity can be made into a full day, but when coordinated with the tide and Jah Surf School in advance, a half-day is plenty of time to enjoy this family adventure. We recommend doing this family trip in the mornings, to give you time to get coffee at the Looney Bean before your surfing lessons.
November to May is the best time to plan this mini-adventure in Mexico with kids. Most places close shop during the off-season (mid-May to late October). Check the schedules online before you plan your Mazatlán surfing trip.
Normally, we would recommend packing a lunch, but you don't want to miss the lunch that Looney Bean has to offer. Another option is to pack a lunch for the beach and do breakfast at Looney Bean.
