AWESOME time with Alberto and Christian. If I could give them 6 stars, I would!

We have been surfing for a while, but Alberto was able to give us amazing, simple, and easy to understand pointers that will definitely take our surfing to the next level. The coaching is very personalized and tailored to your individual skill level. That’s the sign of a great coach!

It is really worth it to get lessons from Team Surf Peru. Alberto and his team provide everything you need – wetsuits, boards and even a photographer/videographer (the latter for an additional fee). Prices are more than reasonable. And Alberto will be in touch with you both before and after your lesson.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Team Surf Peru and Alberto.

I came in a complete novice and had Alberto has a teacher all to myself and he whipped me into shape. Really the most efficient and passionate about what he does, I learned how to keep my calm and went from falling off the board to feeling like I had control over standing on the board and surfing the waves.
Will definitely take the lessons Alberto taught me into other aspects of my life, muchas gracias Alberto! I’ll be back!!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
