Peru in July/August

« on: July 14 2007 10:07:00 »

I am heading down to Peru from the 18th of July to the 9th of August to primarily surf.  Can anyone recommend some surf camps or hostels close to good breaks? I am going to be moving around the coast so location is going to change.  Any help is appreciated.  If you want to meet up that is welcome as well.

What do you mean with camp? as in pitch a tent?
No that's not safe!

Peru is not a place to stay in a tent, stay in good places with a good security system. Doesn't have to be expensive.

Hi guys! I just came back from a trip to the Peruvian north shore. Sorry if I couldn’t answer your e-mails but I was in the middle of no where having so mach fun I will try to answer your mails anyways.
Elias. There are many surf camps along the coast. Just south of Lima for example there are many many.  . There are a few good ones I know…. Punta Hermosa is a good beach where there are some good surf camps like Sergio’s surf camp and la Isla.

I’m leaving to the north again tomorrow at night guiding..  I hope to see you guys in the water!
