If you don’t feel ready for going solo, here are a few options for you to surf in Cancun:

With a Professional Surf School

As our friends from 360 Surf School point out, the waves in Cancun are gentle and rolling. Which is perfect for beginner surfers to learn and get hooked on the world of Surf. And even intermediate surfers can use these conditions to perfect their technique and sharpen up their skills.

Cancun Jetsurf Academy is an amazing option for learning how to surf without waves. Their boards have an internal combustion engine that uses ‘Greentech’ technology so it doesn’t harm the environment while providing a very innovative and fun way to surf in Cancun.

With a cable and a motorboat for Wakesurfing

Wakeboarding is kind of like the son of surfing and water skiing because it combines the best of both worlds! It is pretty easy, it can be done without waves and even children can do it safely. A great option to get your adrenaline dose when the weather isn’t good enough for surfing.

Even if it’s not the exact same as surfing, it’s definitely a great option to ditch the saltwater and spend the day having fun with friends. The Flowrider is right in front of the lagoon which means it has spectacular view and a chill atmosphere with a Dj and a bar.
