Acapulco's go-to guy for all things surfing is Antonio Diaz at Piquant Surf Shop. He has been riding the waves at Mexico's Revolcadero Beach, Barra Vieja, and Pie de la Cuesta for years and guides trips to them for all levels of expertise. His surfing school gives theoretical and practical instruction and one of the first things that beginners learn is "…how to lie on the board without falling over the edge."
The shop sells T-shirts in rad designs, surfing and skating accessories, board shorts, and Hawaiian shirts. The store also rents and sells long boards, short boards, fishes, fun boards, and semi guns. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind souvenir, consider purchasing a custom made surfboard shaped by legendary Mexican national champion, Roberto Salinas. Check out Piquant's website for daily wave reports about all the central Pacific Ocean beaches including those in front of the Fairmont Princess
and Mayan Palace
