Try to stay around south of Lima or  Lima city. I know some surfers there. You must go to Pico Alto is very big wave the biggest in south america so far. If you need more info write me on my address no problem.

Hey Billy, really want to charge Pico.....? do you have experience in heavy waves? You better...... If so, and your commited, go to Punta hermosa (30 minutes south of Lima) and ask for Oscar Morante. He has a camp-hotel for surfers, and he really knows the break. I've surfed Pico for the last 10 years and let me tell you, I'ts one of the best wave I've paddled. Oscar can rent you a gun. You'll need at least a 9'0.
You need to be in good shape, no partying the night before!!
Take care,  good luck man!!
