Mario is usually set up at cerritos beach every day during peak season (winter). Me and a buddy met up with him during September. He gave us a great price, and was very reasonable when we broke a board. When in todos santos, rent from mario.

My fiance and i signed up for an hours lesson with Chuy and certainly dont regret it. He was verywelcoming, possitive, funny and most importantly looked after our safety. Once the lesson was done, we were given the board for the rest of the day to use for free, you cant say fairer than that! Definitely recommended to those looking... More

We rented our surfboards from Mario and his crew. They are very laid back, as you would hope for on the beach in baja. There are other options on the beach but from my experience he is the one to go with (and the original, been there 12 years I believe) he even gave us a break on the price... More

I don't even know where to start to tell you how wonderful our day was with these guys. My friends and I went and had so much fun! First of all I was so scared to even try surfing. All of us were. The instructors assured us that we can do it and went through everything step by step. Domingo... More

They can get ANYONE to stand! Seriously, I was surprised and thrilled to be practicing within an hour. Mario and the instructors are really kind, observant and patient. They also provide good laughs and motivation when I needed it. My friend and I signed up for two hours, but one hour would have been enough. Unless you're full of boundless... More

We loved every minute with the surf school! Mario and the other instructors were very welcoming and knowledgable. By the end of our trip they felt like family! The beach is perfect for learning to surf! The instructors are skilled, you won't regret choosing to spend the day with them!

Big Thanks to Mario and the gang for helping our family learn to surf. The instruction is excellent and allows the kids to learn quickly and take advantage of a beautiful part of Cabo. We enjoyed the day on the beach and the excellent people. Thanks Mario!

Called up Mario just a couple days in advance, set up a lesson for our group with no problems. He set up chairs and umbrellas for the members of our group that would be watching. Even got waiters from the Beach Club restaurant so they could order drinks. Lesson included Rash Guards and beginner foam boards. Instructors Luis and Humberto... More

Mario and his team picked us up in Cabo and we did a day surfing and relaxing in Cerritos. His team was great, very professional, picked the group of 4 up in a luxury SUV, had chairs and umbrella at the beach. The instructors were pretty cool guys, stayed in the water and helped everyone surf. We had use of... More
