SURF CAMPS IN PERU
Surfing in Peru
Improve your surfing by learning from professional surfers at one of the best surf destinations in Peru. Urcia Surf School in Huanchaco was founded in 2002 and is run by professional surfer Juninho Urcia and his family. Having lived in Huanchaco for many generations and with our family roots in traditional ‘caballito de totora’ fishing with reed surfboard-like boats, we know the ocean and the waves like no other. We are proud of this heritage and would love to share our passion for surfing in Peru with you!
Customize your surf trip
We offer complete surf camp packages including accommodation, surf equipment rental and surf lessons at any level. We also offer a unique combination of surf and Spanish classes. So that besides improving your surfing skills, you can learn a new language. Or go on our caballito tour to get to know the centuries old fishermen culture of Peru. You can fully customise your surf trip to your own preferences. We are happy to help you make your stay at our surf camp in Peru an unforgettable experience!

Our one month Surf camp with the Urcia-Family was just awesome! Juninho and his teachers are doing an amazing job and we improved our surfing a lot. And on top of that the hostel is really small and cozy so you get to know everyone and between guests and volunteers it’s just like one big Family ❤ Huanchaco offers everything from nice and constant surf conditions too great food and beautiful sunsets. We will come back!
Urcia is a special place. Out of all the places I visited in Peru, this is where I felt the most at home. The single corridor of the hostel creates an intimate setting with a great sense of community. Everything is well kept by volunteers and the beautiful family that owns the place. The Surf School has a great selection of boards and wetsuits. When combined with their expert surf staff, led by Juninho Urcia, this place really has everything you need to go from standing up on your first board to shredding a short one or hanging ten.
Huanchaco is a beautiful place, with chilled out vibes and great surf literally every day! (Great for any level of surfer.) The hostal has a very homely, cosy vibe and with an awesome balcony with daily sunset views you'll get to know everyone super quick.
I had a very great time! Small cozy hostel where you can feel very at home. If you want to spend relaxing days surfing, this is the place for you. Also highly recommended are the Surf lessons from Juninho.
Urcia Surf School is definitely a great option to practice surfing. They have very professional and patient teachers, all equipment are good and staff is chilled. I can totally recommend to all!
