Baja California is a 3,200km (2,000mi) long peninsula of rugged coastline with hidden coves, white sandy beaches, rocky bluffs, and turquoise waters teeming with marine life.

The west coast of the Baja is exposed to Pacific swells while the Sea of Cortez on the east coast remains relatively calm. Located at the very end of the Baja peninsula is Los Cabos, which has become a major surf destination for waveriders from around the globe and offers diverse locations, break directions, and level of difficulty – not to mention some of the most spectacular coastal scenery you’re likely to see anywhere in the world.

Stellar surfing can be found year round in Cabo. During the fall and winter surfing is better to the Pacific side of the Cape and during spring and summer it’s better on the Sea of Cortez. The summer months can bring storms with their winds pushing swells, which is great for surfing but it’s also when the waves are the most crowded. September to November is a great time to avoid the crowds and still catch outstanding waves!
