Surf Lessons with Hightide

Hello all,

Here's a little info for those interested in surfing.

This was our first experience with Hightide, but the guys were enthusiastic and a lot of fun. We booked our trip though the concierge at our hotel. They pick you up at your hotel and drive you out to the surfing beach. For us it was Costa Azul near San Jose Del Cabo. Its a little pricey, $85 per surfer, half price if you want to go for the ride. They plan on 3 hours out in the water. My wife and I just went for the ride and my two teenagers surfed. All you need to bring is a towel and sunscreen. They supply the surfing gear and drinks.

Our driver, Roberto (also one of the instructors) was super friendly and a lot of fun. Most everyone in our group were beginners and they hold your hand out there if you need that. The waves on that day were only about 3-4 feet which was perfect for first timers.

I was amazed at how hard these guys worked they really loved to surf and most importantly loved to teach people to surf. Most of the group was tired after about an hour and a half but the guys were "dragging" people back in for more waves.

Hang ten!

Surfing is available for advanced as well as beginners at www.cerritosbcs.com/ Ive heard they will pick you up free. This beach is about 1 1/2 hours away.

Ive just tried the web site for cerritos beach and it is not working. If anyone has the correct site please post it. And the beach is listed at only 30 min from Cabos.

Scott, thanks so much for your review. Sounds like your teens had a good time learning to surf with Hightide.

We hardly ever get any surfing reviews on here, so yours will be especially welcomed by future visitors wanting information on the sport.
