Terrible overpriced, instructors with questionable knowledge, mostly drunk. Impossible to make real schedule because of good waves when all of them just close no matter for an appointment that you already had. Owner Tacho needs someone to give him lessons for his poor English cause most of the time you can’t understand him at all and to understand that’s not everything about ripping off tourists that came there because of his good reviews. Rather go to other two schools on beach. Way more professional for the same price. If you can, avoid Cerritos in general. It was long time ago when this was unknown paradise. Too bad.

Everyone here is very nice and upbeat! The pricing is very reasonable! Plus they rent boards, chairs and umbrellas too. They are very accommodating and great with kids. They are all bilingual. We adults learned more and made leaps and bounds of improvement here in one lesson with Edgar than we have in all previous surf lessons combined. We are very thankful to these great guys!!

Playa Cerritos is the best. We’ve been there for 6 days. It wouldn’t be better! Private surf lessons with your own coach, the best way you can improve your surfing! Canopy shade, snacks, waters and drinks were included. Free board during the whole day after the lesson. Tacho and his team were great! We will come back for sure

When a family of pasty-white Canadians show up at Los Cerritos I had no idea what the welcome or vibe would be like. Tacho and his crew treated us like family and took incredible care of us. Tacho is very thoughtful and keeps safety #1, but a close 2nd is fun fun fun. They have all you need and are super well priced. I took an advanced lesson with Luis and I couldn’t have felt safer and in better hands. Go see Tacho or connect with him in advance before you arrive through his website or Facebook. He (and his crew) will make your vacation! Playa Cerritos is a true gem too. Get there before the Condos explode because it’s started. What an escape! Mucho gracias Tacho!!

West side surf school was absolutely stellar. These guys have great deals and want everyone to learn. They give good lessons and have a great selection of boards that are affordable to rent. They are extremely friendly and bring a lot of stoke to the beach. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a lesson or just looking for a board to rent. Tacho and his staff are awesome!!
