Join us in Huanchaco, Peru for a surf adventure where surfing is said to have originated. This trip is designed for teaching those who have never surfed before or are beginner surfers. However, intermediate to advanced surfers are welcome to join and will equally benefit from the experience. Partnered with local ex-pro surfers who have over 50 years of combined experience surfing, we guarantee you will stand up on the first day. 

Step into the rhythm of nature on a journey that is an equal balance of surfing and cultural immersion. Eat fresh ceviche, learn to salsa, help the community with a beach clean up and learn how a local organization is empowering youth through surfing, learn the art of Totora Reed Caballito's (the original surf board), learn how to make and shape modern surf boards, and see ancient ruins.

10 Day Sample Schedule

Day 2-11: 

December 2-11

Due to the fluid nature of this trip, we will operate under a Sample Schedule instead of a daily itinerary. However, all of the highlights and inclusions will be included at different points throughout the 12 days. 

Sample Daily Schedule

  • 7:00am - 8:00am Yoga class on the rooftop terrace

  • 8:00am - 9:00am Breakfast time

  • 10:00am- 2:00pm Daily surf lessons and/or practice

  • From 2:00 Free time

This trip is all about going with the flow and tuning in with nature. Working closely with our Peruvian partners, and ex-pro surfers, who are from the area and experts in how the tide breaks, each day we will wake to read the tide and adjust the schedule for the day. 

Depending on your personal needs for rest and relaxation we will spend most days surfing in the morning. Additional excursions are planned for visiting local historical sites and visiting the town of Trujillo.

 

Huanchaco has a consistent beach break that makes it ideal for learning to surf and committed practice. However, once during our trip we will head north to Chicama beach to surf the longest left hand wave in the world. 

Our mission is to help you learn to surf, rest, and rejuvenate. We will be there every step of the way to support you, while providing space to explore the local culture and food scene.
