I am from phila and live in Miami. I went to peru last sept. Mancora (in northern Peru) is a great spot to learn surfing, spanish and have a great time in general. Me and my friends had a blast there.It is a very laid back town with great food and people. Waves are better in the spring but there is always something to ride..stay at the Wawa hotel near the bridge. You can rent boards in front of this hotel.

Dear Mike

there are somw good schools that might teach you the basics, it cost around US$ 100 for a basic course, you can buy a surfboard for around US$ 200-250, and then the rest will be practicing. You should get a wetsuit from the US, much cheaper, and you will need that since the water is quite cold
