I'm going to South America and wanted to know if it was possible to learn to surf down there. If so where is good?
Lots of surf in South America! Gets big though.
Are you going to Ecuador? If so go to Montanita. Loads of travellers, board rentals and I'm sure some sexy ecuadorian guy to teach you! Good parties too.
In Peru you could try the beaches just south of Lima, or a beach in the north, I think it's called Huancaco.
Brazil would probably be good for learning as surfing and beach life is pretty big over there. over 8 years agoAnswered by whoissteveanyway via Travellr.com
I know it's late for your trip but for the purposes of letting others with a similar question, look at WAVES for Development in northern Peru. They do trips that combine surfing school and a volunteering stints. A great organization and goo people. about 7 years ago
