TESTIMONIALS

"Corey is a TOP NOTCH surf instructor. He doesn't just bring you into the water and try to throw you up on waves like most other instructors. He teaches you the fundamentals of surfing, importance of muscle memory and good habits, how to stay safe and calm in the water especially in rough waves, how currents work and how to use them to your advantage and most importantly how to become a real surfer. You will leave his lessons with valuable surf knowledge for life. You won't get this type of lesson anywhere else. Highly recommend."

Adam Marafioti

  "Great instruction, excellent location, memorable experience.

Variant Surf co. provides an experience we could not get elsewhere. Corey met us at the airport, gave excellent surf instruction (including helpful etiquette and safety info, lots of practice reading the waves), and was a great resource for local culture. It was helpful that he is a native English speaker. I really appreciated Corey’s attention to safety in the water and coaching style."

Vanessa C.

                 "I don't think we stopped laughing for even one second! Epic day with a surf trip and dinner."

There are five luxurious suites (2 or 3 guests per room depending on number of attendees), each with a private bath, air conditioning, WiFi and spectacular ocean views.

About us

Variant Surf Co. was originally created in 2013 as the Chillum Surf House in Sayulita, Nayarit México. Chillum was a collaboration of a surf and adventure shop, accommodations, sushi restaurant, and bar, all in one location. In 2022, the original brick and mortar location was closed permanently and Variant Surf Co. was created.

 

We have learned how to better and more specifically cater to our guest's individual wants and needs. We now offer a unique approach when it comes to surf vacation packages and guided trips. Instead of having the storefront open to walk-ins, we now offer customized bookings for individuals or groups only. This allows us to focus our attention on the guests and create a more personal experience.
