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

Yes, prices are the same for both children and adults. If we have children participating we always aim to have an extra guide for supervision. When you book your surf lesson, please specify whether the participants are children.

We recommend as early a start as possible as in the mornings there is less wind and cleaner waves, so the conditions are usually more favorable.

Your safety is our priority. When the conditions are not favorable, due to wind, high waves, or a tropical storm, we offer to change the day of your reservation or make a refund.

Our activities include transportation, within the center and hotel zone of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.

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.

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

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.
