Mancora Peru surfboard rentals?

« on: June 08 2007 18:06:00 »

Hi I was wanting to go to Mancora in August. How is the surf then? Is it possible to rent boards there? How much do they go for? Any info will be helpful. Thanks Gracias

usually there is no surf in august in Mancora... BUT I have seen it going off in late July, so you might get lucky.... board rentals can be found at Soledad surf shop right on the point.  if the surf is flat in Mancora, you can hire a cab or van to drive you to lobitos/piscinas where there is ALWAYS surf (about 45 minutes drive).
good luck!

20-30 soles (US$6-10) will get you a board for a full day, plenty of places to rent from!

Hi Lori! Piscinas is not really a beach where you can just go. It is a military fortress you need to ask for a permission and etc.
Surf boards! You can also rent boards in Lima for the week, which is cheaper sometimes.

Piscinas is actually pretty easy to get to, and board rentals are widely available in mancora, so no need to go to Lima for that.
