Surfing in May

« on: February 14 2013 16:02:00 »

Hi, some friends and I are heading to Peru in May and I am wondering about the surf around Lima. Is it reef/rock or sand? What temperature is the water (as in do I need a full wetsuit)? I am bringing my board but some people will need to rent one, are there shops in the Lima area to take care of that? What are any known hazards?
Also, I am open to go to other areas in Peru if anyone has somewhere to suggest.
