Anyone surfed Peru in September?

I'm thinking about doing a surf trip to Peru for 3-4 weeks this September, and was wondering if this would be a good time of year to go.  My tenative plan is to fly into Lima, check out Punta Hermosa for about fives days, then spend a few days going to Machu Pichu, and then head north for the remainder of the trip to check out Chicama and Mancora before heading back to Lima.  Any advice or suggestions you guys could give me would be great!

Here's a tip: Chicama needs a solid swell, if it's under 5' go to Pacasmayo

RE: Anyone surfed Peru in September?

I think everything depends on your surfing level. If you are ok with a small board then Lobitos may suit you very well even with the crowds all day. Chicama is fast and strong rip when is boggerb than 5 ft. Pacasmayo and Poemape gets much bigger than chicama with same swell, with plenty of Brazilians around. Peaceful spots, Bermejo, Centinela and Organos. About P. H ermosa water is cold at that time of the year but has active breaks around everyday.  Have fun!
