Hi, I will be in peru for a month in April and have heard it has some great surf. Could anyone advice on surf schools for lessions or just great places to learn on the coast of Peru?

I don't know about surf schools, but north coast has lot of great beaches for surfers.

Try a peruvian surfers site.

It's a spanish language website, but if yout contact them sure one of them is english speaking and may answer you. (try in the main page, the link "Escribenos", there you can fill your name and quesiton).

Many thanks for your the web link, there were actually a few adverts on the site for surf schools, all of which I have email. Cheers Lou :)

i think most surf in the north might be too big to learn on. at least any of the pop beachs.
you should try to get some before you go.
also be careful as alot of beachs in that area have great rip tides.ask about what the beach is like.
