AVEX SURF SCHOOL
ABOUT AVEX SURF:
Gaston Baez, founder & owner of Avex Surf School Sayulita, was born and raised in the Patagonia region of Argentina. Being an avid snowboarder and extreme sport lover his whole life, he first founded Avex Surf (then known just as “Avex”) in his hometown in Argentina in 2009, where it was originally known for being a snow-sport company. After traveling and living all over the world (such as Brazil, Ecuador, and Spain) Gaston began to take on the sport of surfing. Gaston has worked at, taught at, and managed many surf schools and companies over the years, but after moving to Sayulita in 2017, his dream was to change the direction of his former company, previously known for its affiliation with snow sports, into his own surf school. That dream became a reality in 2018 when he officially turned “Avex” into Avex Surf School Sayulita, and began teaching and giving lessons, of course meeting other skilled surf instructors along the way who are now a part of the Avex Surf School team.
