La Fortuna Surf Shop and Surfing Lessons

Surfing at La Fortuna beach, just 30 minutes from Cabo, is an unforgettable experience. The surf here is some of the best on the Baja peninsula, and there are a ton of different breaks in the area to check out. It's an excellent place for beginners to learn, with perfect swells and far fewer people than other surfing beaches in Cabo. Many times you will have the beach to yourself!

Taking a surfing lesson will ensure you experience the best breaks in the area, plus you can brush up on your skills or learn to surf for the first time. Surfing can be a challenging sport to try to learn on your own and there are a lot of safety factors involved. We have partnered with Bernardo at La Fortuna to bring you the best-in-class surfing experience near Cabo at La Fortuna Beach. Bernardo's vibe is exactly what you would expect from someone who wakes up at 3 am sometimes to catch the waves by 6 AM so that he is perfectly on time to meet you for your lesson. Surfing with Bernardo in Baja isn't just a lesson, it's as if you are learning surfing from your friend.


La Fortuna Surf School is conveniently located right on La Fortuna Beach on the East Cape of Baja. It's location just 30 minutes from Cabo seems a world away from the busier beaches down south. There are several different beaches and breaks near the shop that are perfect for learning to surf. Depending on the conditions of the day and your previous surfing experience, Bernardo will select the best option for you.
