Known for his big smile and infectious laughter Julio infuses each surf lesson with his good natured charm.  His goal is to provide safe and fun surf lessons for beginner – intermediate surfers of all ages.  He has many years experience as a surf instructor and has taught students both here in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca and in Sayulita, Nayarit.   He uses boards that are specifically designed for beginner surfers with a softer surface material and flexible fins for safety.

When the waves are small, you may see him out on a long board teaching his nieces ages 2 and 4 to surf, or practicing his long-board acrobatics catching waves on his head.

When he is not surfing, Julio can be found working on designs for new paintings, t-shirts, or tattoos.  Painting surfboards started out as a way to spruce up old or broken boards surfers would leave behind on their trips.  Eventually word got out and many local surfers began requesting his designs on their boards.  A few have even gotten tattoos of drawings he has created.

Most recently he was asked to paint murals at the new Fish Taco and Beer in Zicatela.  He is currently apprenticing with local tattoo artists in his free time.
