Established by professional surfers from Huanchaco, Peru, Urcia Surf School teaches all levels from beginner to advanced and competitive surfers.
John is the main surf trainer and surf coach of Urcia Surf School. Practicing surf since 20 years ago, he was competing in his early years and became Peru's vice-champion in 2007. He has been working at surf competitions for 10 years and organizing surf competitions for two years. What makes him so special is that he has a lot of experience with beginners (also at daily work he still holds most of the classes) as well as with professionals. He is training Peru´s best riders, who are competing worldwide! For him, surfing is a vocation.

"Spectacular experience with Urcia surfschool package "
I just finished the 6 day surf camp with Urcia surfschool and had a fantastic time. The family run, laid back vibe of indiga hostel is amazing - Miriam and John will make you feel like family. The breakfasts are incredible, two courses, beautiful, healthy, totally home made. John is a very good surf teacher, pays close attention to detail, is encouraging, helpful and fun. The Caballito tour was also a really cool experience, giving me authentic insight into the history and daily life of Haunchaco. I can’t recommend this package enough.
