Giancarlo has over a decade of experience as a certified tour guide and surf instructor. He has been surfing the entire coast of Peru most of his life and he truly wants to share all that Peru has to offer with the world.
I booked this hostel with zero knowledge on surfing but it turned out that this is one of the best spots to learn how to surf. Although my boyfriend and I didn't sign up for the lessons our Host Giancarlo did tell us where we could go and pointed us in the direction of a beach with small waves that was super easy to learn on! Over there i was able to get up twice !!! The hostel was comfortable and the guests there that we met were awesome, we had such a great stay there. The town is very quiet but the beaches are perfect and surfing is is (from what i hear) one of the best spots in the world to learn. p.s. fantastic breakfast included :)
I spent 10 days in waves surf camp in Punta Hermosa. Punta Hermosa is really good for surfing, consistent and a lot of point breaks around the camp. You go surfing twice a day to different spots with the surfvan. Sometimes we also did longer excursions to other spots around. Perfect if you wanna relax and just go surfing for a while.
Giancarlo is a a great guide to this beautiful country, full of information of the history and culture of this fantastic country. Also not to mention offering awesome fun as a surf instructor. Friendly and helpful. So much to enjoy in Punta Hermosa!
This is my second surf trip based out of Punta Hermosa and both times I was lucky enough to have Giancarlo as my guide and instructor, this trip at his own surf camp. Giancarlo has an intimate knowledge of the local surf spots and also of other great spots for extended trips up or down the coast. Do to this knowledge he is able to choose the right spots for you based on ability and conditions and get you in to some of the best surf of your life. This camp is situated in the small town of Punta Hermosa with close access to literally dozens of surf breaks many of which are world famous. The camp itself is clean and comfortable with plenty of space to relax after a day in the water and good filling food to fuel you for the adventure. I would encourage anyone going to this part of Peru for surfing to get in touch with Giancarlo and let him tailor a package to your individual needs. I can't wait to go back in April
We spent five nights at Waves Surf Camp and it was one of the best decisions on our trip to Peru! Giancarlo was an amazing host and he took us everyday to different spots to surf. We were 100% beginners at surfing, so Giancarlo offered us a very affordable all-inclusive package (accomodation, three meals a day, surf gear, daily lessons, transportation etc.) which was great value. Very much recommended!
