When in Los Cabos, don’t pass up the chance to pick up surfing tips from national champions of the sport. After hotel or cruise-port pickup in Los Cabos, travel by air-conditioned minivan to Costa Azul.


Know the safety briefing from your instructor

Upon arrival at the beach, meet your instructors for your safety briefing and instruction. Slip-on your rash guard or wetsuit, and practice the proper techniques for paddling and popping up on your longboard. Listen to the rules of surfing etiquette, designed to keep everyone in the water safe, and learn how to wipe out harmlessly, which may come in quite handy.


Off into the waters you go! Fasten your ankle strap and hop on your board; then paddle out from the beach with your heart racing and eyes peeled out for your first wave. Shout out ‘Akaw!’, Old-School surf slang, when sighting your ideal wave.


Feel confident with the support of an instructor with you in the water; if you need it, you’ll be given a little push from the back of your board to help you catch as many waves as possible.


Relax and enjoy! Everything is tailored based on your skill level

This lesson is tailored to your skill level; if you are a beginner, your instructor ensures you don’t go near the bigger waves. If you are at a more advanced level, your instructor guides you on how to read waves, turn, and ride the larger ones. Take a break onshore to rehydrate and refuel with granola bars, before going back out into the water.


If you’ve selected the full-day option, board your minivan and head to a local restaurant for a hearty and delicious lunch of rice, beans, fish tacos, avocado sauce, and soft drinks before transport back to your hotel or the cruise terminal.


Summer is one of the best times of the year to catch waves in Cabo. It’s just a short drive to the popular surf resort town of Costa Azul, located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. Select a morning or afternoon departure.
