Always striving to make your surf trip, photo session or video surf coaching with me... the best memory possible. 

Surfing with Manny and friends in Baja was the greatest! He took us to the best surf spots with empty waves (close to our comfortable beach house), fed us the tastiest fish tacos and lobster, and introduced us to the friendly locals and cool tourist attractions. He is an amazing photographer and captured nearly the entire weekend on camera, my favorite being the awesome shots he got of us on the waves. Epic surf, delicious food, incredible photos, and even knowledge about the local missions, Manny provided it all. Thank you Manny. Can't wait to go back!

Had a fantastic weekend with new friends, new waves and delicious food. Manny took care of every detail seemingly with ease and a big smile. I can't wait for the next trip!

I am a local to San Diego and in my 10+ years of surfing/ living in area, I never once experienced a surf day trip like this my own backyard. I recommend Epic Surf Tours for both local surfers and out of town surf travelers. There are many tours in San Diego and many beaches to surf on your own. But having an expert guide give lay of the land is such a memorable experience. Manny V. is an excellent surf guide and photographer. He is an expert at what he does, and you can feel secure knowing he's got all bases covered. You can relax , get your surf on, and build memories that will last a life time. Thanks Manny V!

Epic Boat Trip

Baja Weekender with Manny Vargas is a guaranteed EPIC time. No matter your skill level or experience, Manny V will take care of everything. Food, transportation, living arrangements, photos, it's all covered! I challenge you to find any ONE of the accommodations and you won't come anywhere near what you will have with Manny and his experience and talent both in the water and behind the lens. Like I've said in the past, this was not my first trip with Manny V and definitely not my last!

Glassy waves, near-empty lineups and lobster -- what else could you want from a Baja surf weekend? Manny V is a fun, chill guide who is dialed in to all the best breaks and restaurants, speaks fluent Spanish, knows the locals and is all about making sure you have a great time. Our group of five women felt totally safe in and out of the water. Can't wait for the next one!

This was my first time surfing in Baja as well as my first time on a Baja Weekender trip with Manny and both first far exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of the weekend was amazing, down to the breakfast burrito(s). Manny makes things so easy and so fun. I love how he even has a special blue carpet for us to stand on while changing and cold beer ready after each session. He's thought of every detail. All meals were amazing and the surf even better. On Sunday, it was perfect conditions and there was no one out but our little group. I caught more waves on this trip than I would in a month back home at my usual (crowded) break. And an extra bonus is the amazing photos he takes. Those make the price of the trip seem like a steal. If you're looking for a way to experience Baja from a local, the Baja Weekender will deliver. Thank you Manny for an amazing weekend! Can't wait for the next one!

Our pictures are amazing! Manny really knows what he is doing! Lighting was on point and not only did he find our best waves shots but also got some very nice Instagram shots. - Turtle Crew

WOW, just wow. I went into the weekend with no expectations as I didn’t know what to expect but by Monday I was blown away (and exhausted ?) All weekend we were led by Manny to incredible surf, cuisine, hospitality and along the way he was anticipating every need. Manny was on top of anything and everything. We were brought to some incredible breathtaking surf spots with epic rights and soft beautiful waves. The food on this trip was outstanding and everywhere we went we felt and were treated so very welcomed and always left full. The accommodations are within walking distance of surf and a private beach. The house was big enough for everyone to enjoy and have their own private space.  I will be back, sooner than later!  Thank you for such a great weekend!

Manny runs a great trip! He was recommended by a friend who has been on the Baja Weekend many times... we were not disappointed! Uncrowded waves, safe travel, comfortable lodging, fantastic food, nothing to worry about. Manny is a great host and guide. Will definitely be back!
