Enjoy Cabo Surfing Lessons at the Beautiful Playa Los Cerritos

When visiting Los Cabos, you just have to try surfing! We have great conditions here at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, and the beaches around Cabo San Lucas have some of the best waves you’ll find.

While we also love our calm waters for snorkeling and paddleboarding, we know the perfect spots to get good beginner waves if you’re ready to learn how to surf. We also know the best locations for intermediate or advanced surfers who want a professional coach to help improve their skills! One of our favorite Cabo surf lesson spots is at Cerritos on the Pacific side of the peninsula. This is the perfect spot if you’re staying in Cabo San Lucas instead of San Jose del Cabo.

Not sure which location or activity is right for you? Contact us, and we’ll be happy to help you make the best plans for your Cabo vacation!

Surfing in Cabo on the Pacific Side

Our Cabo surfing lessons at Cerritos show off this world-renowned surf spot with a beach break. Cerritos is exposed to northwest swells that can light up for days in super clean conditions. It’s a great spot not only for the experienced surfer but also for beginners. If you’re ready to try surfing in Cabo, our professional coaches will make you feel safe and confident as you get out and have some fun. It won’t take long for you to experience the craving for the wave! You might alternatively want to join our private Cabo San Lucas surfing lessons for a more personalized experience. If paddle-boarding is your thing, you should also look at our group paddle-boarding tour in Los Cabos.

Or, if you’ve been looking for the best snorkeling beaches in San Jose del Cabo, consider our Cabo Guided Snorkel Tour, which offers convenient pick-up and drop-off options.

These Cerritos surfing lessons run from the 15th of November to the 15th of March each year.

Maximum 15 participants on this tour.

For security, we use foam boards. If you need fiberglass, please let us know in advance.

For your safety, please notify us of any medical conditions in advance of the lessons.

We have two seasons for surf lessons, in the summer from March 15 to November 15, surf lessons are available on the Costa Azul. In winter from November 15 to March 15, we offer surf lessons at Cerritos beach

During the winter there are no waves on the Costa Azul beach, which is why the change is made to Cerritos beach.

No prior experience is required! Our classes are designed for all experience levels, from beginners (we teach you enough to catch a wave) to experts (we offer coaching), always ensuring a great experience at each level as needed.

For every 3 people in a class, there will be 1 guide/coach

Our activities take place on the beach, where there are no locker facilities. However, you can safely leave your personal belongings in the transportation.

Lunch is included. We’ll take you to a local restaurant, offering 100% Mexican dishes such as fish tacos, chicken, beef, salsa, guacamole, tortilla chips, and refreshing flavored water. We also have a vegetarian option with salads, quesadillas, beans, rice, etc. Lunch is included but optional, so there is no discount offered on the activity if you choose not to go for lunch.

As we know the weather is a factor that can lead us to modify our day, sometimes we will have to change location, reschedule and / or cancel (the refund will be issued 100% in case of cancellation by us). You will be informed of the options and you will make the decision. Factors that could influence this are rain, high swell, wind and jellyfish.

For a full refund, you must cancel at least 48 hours in advance of the start date of the experience. No show or last minute cancellation will be charged in full. This experience requires good weather. If it’s canceled due to poor weather, you’ll be offered a different date or a full refund.

No, all transfers are complementary and optional, therefore the price doesn’t change if you don’t use the transfer option.
