      Excellent SUP surf boards and paddle selection
      Excellent SUP surf equipment! Great selection of JP, Fanatic and Starboard SUP boards for beginner to advanced! Quikblade paddles were a welcome surprise. Alberto and team were very helpful and put us on the perfect spot. Highly recommended if you’re in Lima and looking for SUP surfing rentals or lessons! Plus, they provide videos if you’re interested! Thank you!

      Surf trip
      I hired Alberto of Surf Peru for a day trip to a spot outside Lima. He did a great job of analyzing the swell and conditions and choosing Puerto Viejo. Easy paddle out, sandy bottom and very fun waves. Alberto is super fun, has great local knowledge and a great variety of boards and equipment. Thanks Surf Peru for a super fun strike mission.

      Great lesson and board rental
      My wife had a great lesson and I rented a nice board at Playa Makaha. Wetsuits were clean and high quality. Lots of surf places with boards along the shore there, Team Surf Peru is right in the middle. They were happy to lock our belongings in their car while we surfed. Super nice learning wave and the outside was well formed and a great longboard wave but with more powerful, good shortboard waves on the sets. Would definitely go back and consider booking a longer surf trip with them in the future.

      Excellent!
      Alberto was so kind trying to help me book a private class just a day before. My class took about 1 hour and 30minutes with the instructor Gustavo. Gustavo was very encouraging and cheerful during the whole class. I would definitely come back for another class with this awesome team:)

      Find the perfect wave
      Alberto picked me up from the hotel. Had time to squeeze one surf day into the trip. He had a great selection of boards and ended up surfing a little fish, found a fun little wave and had a blast. Would def surf again when I’m down there.

      Amazing Surf Camp
      Just finished a 4 day 3 night surf camp with Alberto and was a completely brilliant experience. Alberto organised accommodation at a lovely hotel really close to the surf school, which included a great breakfast and everything else you could wish for to get a good nights rest in between surfing lessons. We surfed once in the morning and once in the afternoon each day. Alberto was a brilliant teacher, very hands on and made us feel safe in the water. We made massive improvements as a result of his coaching. Alberto organised professional style photographs to be taken as well as in the water GoPro sessions so we could review our technique. This was a really nice touch, good for the memories as well! Alberto took us out for lunch/ dinner each day at a different local Peruvian restaurant. This was great as it allowed us to explore the local cuisine which is sometimes difficult to do properly without the knowledge of a local. All meals were delicious! Overall we felt the surf camp was incredibly good value for money (paid an initial deposit via Western Union) and we’ve both come on leaps and bounds at surfing. Want to say a personal thank you to Alberto and his assistant James for the past few days, a really brilliant experience! 100% recommend!

      Lovely Owners!
      We rented a surfboard here last week and were super happy with it! The guys that work here gave us great tips about the spot and were super lovely in general! We felt really happy to have chosen this company! One of them even gave us great tips for some surf spots in the north of Peru! They also take great photos with a huge lense of you if you’d like that! We wanted to come back the next day but couldn’t make it - sorry guys!! Can absolutely recommend this place!

      Amazing experience!!!
      Alberto is the most amazing instructor and is very accommodating! I messed up my ride to the beach and was over an hour late but he still gave me an amazing lesson and then drove me into town and gave me lunch recommendations! I will definetly be returning for another lesson in a few weeks when I return to Peru!

      An amazing Surf Trip!
      Peru has the best waves I've ever seen and the best way to experience them is with Alberto and Surf Peru! I had an incredible time and lots of fun. Alberto is an exelent guide and an outstanding professional that will go out of his way to make sure you meet your objectives for the trip and fully enjoy it! Alberto is extremely dedicated and passionate in providing a quality service and that really stands out. I'll definitely go back to Peru and Alberto will be my choice for my next surf trip. Thanks for everything!

      Intro Surf Lesson
      I was in town for work and had heard this was the place to go to learn. It did not disappoint. It was a great experience and Alberto (owner/operator) was awesome. He was more than patient and very accommodating. I had never set foot on a surf board before that day and I was riding waves with his help immediately. I would recommend Alberto and his establishment to anyone looking to learn or just rent a board. Very pleased with the experience!

    Alberto knows what he is doing. I had spent plenty of frustrating hours trying to surf by myself - and figured I would finally pay for the instruction. I'm glad I found him. Friendly guy who is an ace at surfing and gives clear direction. Good English speaker as well.

    Enjoyed myself here sooo much. Delicated and friendly teacher that really lifts you to the next level. Will for sure return to improve my skills. Additional services like video evaluation to see where and what you can improve or a nice souvenir of your fun time in the water! One of the best places I have ever surfed and a good place if you are willing to learn and improve your surfing or stand up paddle boarding skills.

    Out of a whim, my son and I decided to surf before we left Peru. So glad we found Surf Peru. As painless as they come, easy set up! Alberto picked us up at the hotel and brought us down to the ocean. He's a lifelong surfer and we quickly bonded while he taught as the basics on land. All equipment including the wetsuits and boards were provided. Both my son and I got up and was able to actually surf -- all in about two hours. Felt safe the whole time! It's my first time on a board and probably won't be the last! Thanks Alberto for taking us on as students!

    The instructor left me alone in the water after a very short lesson. Someone else from my party came back to find me. They showed no concern when we got back. Very unprofessional and unsafe. Do not book a lesson with them.

    I am glad I found Team Surf when I was tied of self-acclaimed "instructors" who only help with pushing the board but have zero constructive feedback on how to improve the skills. Alberto knows the why/how/when; he broke down the mechanics and offered many helpful tips that helped us improve our skills. He will absolutely make the most of your class - even when the wave conditions aren't perfect he'd help you catch every possible and impossible wave, or suggest new goals other than just standing up. Choose Team Surf and you won't regret!

    这个老师比较专业,并不像很多所谓的“老师”只是帮着划水或者推板。他会跟你讲解为什么做,怎样做,何时做。向他学习能很快的提升技巧。和他一起也能抓到更多的浪。他还会激发你尝试新的目标。有任何问题他都认真耐心回答。强烈推荐!

    Alberto and Andres were incredible surf instructors for our family, all of whom are extreme novices. They were super fun but also great instructors, really pushing us to do things the right way. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

    We had two instructors, Alberto and Lenny, between two of us. We have never surfed before and loved the whole experience. Quality service, equipment, even fresh water when we finished. Both managed to catch waves. Would definitely recommend.

    Surf Peru offers the best surfing classes in Peru. I’m a repeater that this was my 3rd time taking the class with them.
    Alberto has surfed all his life. He has so much teaching experience that he takes videos of you while he surfs next to you!!
    I tried to upload the video to this page, but it didn’t work.

    This is the best place to take a surf class
    Even if you have never surfed before, you will be in good hands. The class comes with all the rentals included. I’ve never surfed before, and now I can get up in the board to catch waves by myself.

    Location has moved from Miraflores pebble beach to smooth sand beach in Barranco!

    Great first time experience! Alberto ran through all the basics necessary and was detail oriented in order to have a fun and successful run. Definitely listen to his instructions and you'll catch a couple of waves.

    Overall great time :)

    This was our first time surfing and thanks to Alberto we were able to stand up on the board several times!
    We spent 5min on beach to learn quickly how to stand up and then directly in the cold waters of Lima. Very good experience that motivated us to keep practicing afterwards.
