Surf Tent

Our Story...

Established in 2015 with just an umbrella and 4 surfboards on Sayulita's main beach, we've grown with passion and dedication.

Today, not only have we traded that umbrella for a tent and opened our very own store, but we've maintained our commitment to offering unique experiences.


We provide tailored lessons for both beginners and intermediate surfers here in Sayulita.

And if you're looking to escape the bustling Sayulita crowds, we offer lessons and surf trips to one of the laid-back breaks of Punta de Mita.

But Marea's offerings go beyond just surfing: from board rentals to sunset bonfires, snorkeling in crystal-clear waters, and adventures to waterfalls and thermal waters. At Marea, it's not just about catching waves; we're genuinely curious about your story and are passionate about building a connection that goes beyond the surfboard.

From our humble beachside beginnings to today, our enthusiasm is as lively as the waves we ride.

Dive into the Marea experience, let's create lasting memories together. 
We look out for your visit to Sayulita!
