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.

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.
