August in Los Cabos

« on: March 30 2010 03:03:00 »

Hey everyone. i'm going to Cabo for my honeymoon in August, and I got a few surf-related questions:

What's it like there in August?
Is it recommended for Beginner / Intermediate levels?
What are the best times to surf in Cabo (tide-wise)?
Is early morning advisable?

August is hot. Yet really fun, I go every July to avoid the potential flies that arrive after the first rain.  As far as the surf, its got it all, old mans is a beginner spot and zipper is worth it if you feel like getting snaked by a bunch of disrespecting guys who wouldn't even know what a surf board is unless someone made the mistake of giving them one.  I recommend east cape that time of year, but not with your wife.  Good luck and pray the rain comes in september

Thanx for the reply man!

Is the rain real bad? I heard they only get like a few hours of rain in total during August.

Also is zippers that bad? I'll be staying at a hotel at the Corridor. And I definitelly need some coaching, as I live and surf in Greece,where we don't have open ocean effects such as riptides etc. Do you know if there's a decent surf school there?

You can get lessons at Mike Doyle Surf School, located at the Cabo Surf Hotel. You can rent boards there to or across the highway is Costa Azul Surf shop, rent boards, get lessons.... talk to Alex   Have fun

The waves are fun in front of the hotel, watch for rocks and low tide is best.

thanks man.
The Doyle school is kinda expensive. Are the Costa Azul guys any good?
