Great experience for a beginner
Sep 2021
I’m a beginner except for a few lessons in Costa Rica. In a single lesson I already progressed more here than there. Alberto is an excellent teacher and his attention made the lesson fun and chill, building my confidence, keeping me calm and focused on technique. Communication before and during the lesson was good and fast. The gear was solid - the boards were much better than what I used in CR, and I was worried about the cold water, but with the wetsuit I didn’t even notice it. I highly recommend taking lessons from Team Surf Peru. (I’m going back for more lessons next week.)

Great experience
Feb 2021
Alberto knows what he is doing. I had spent plenty of frustrating hours trying to surf by myself - and figured I would finally pay for the instruction. I'm glad I found him. Friendly guy who is an ace at surfing and gives clear direction. Good English speaker as well.

Experience of a Lifetime!
Dec 2020 • Friends
Alberto was awesome! Both of the instructors were. Very friendly and helpful, and was an overall really fun experience! Alberto said he has been surfing for over 30 years and it shows, he’s really good at it! Couldn’t have had a better first-time surfing experience that this! I would 12/10 recommend to anyone!

Also, Alberto is fully bilingual in English and Spanish if language is a concern for you. He was able to speak to us in both languages perfectly fine.

PS a fun fact is that Perú has no recorded Shark Attacks and the risks are about as low as they get here. If that is your worry with surfing like mine always has been (I’m terrified of sharks), no need. This area doesn’t really attract any sharks.

First Time Surfing - Control Your Emotions
Nov 2020
"Everything starts with the ocean and ends with the ocean." Words from my instructor, Alberto.
Alberto has a lot of wisdom, which I admired immediately about him. He taught me that surfing is about learning to control your emotions and calm your mind. One of my biggest challenges in life has been learning to do both of these. We oftentimes put more emphasis on the physical aspect of a sport, when in reality it is the inside work that is important. Once we master our mind and emotions, the physical follows.
The first day with Alberto I was unsuccessful because I was in my head and full of fear. However, on the second day, I was finally able to stand on the board. It was so exciting. I replaced the fear with confidence. Alberto was very patient and did not allow me to quit even when I was frustrated with myself. He is a great instructor and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn to surf.

Amazing first surfing experience im Lima
This was our first time surfing and thanks to Alberto we were able to stand up on the board several times!
We spent 5min on beach to learn quickly how to stand up and then directly in the cold waters of Lima. Very good experience that motivated us to keep practicing afterwards.

Technique-focused pro surfer and instructor
Jul 2020
I am glad I found Team Surf when I was tied of self-acclaimed "instructors" who only help with pushing the board but have zero constructive feedback on how to improve the skills. Alberto knows the why/how/when; he broke down the mechanics and offered many helpful tips that helped us improve our skills. He will absolutely make the most of your class - even when the wave conditions aren't perfect he'd help you catch every possible and impossible wave, or suggest new goals other than just standing up. Choose Team Surf and you won't regret!

这个老师比较专业,并不像很多所谓的“老师”只是帮着划水或者推板。他会跟你讲解为什么做,怎样做,何时做。向他学习能很快的提升技巧。和他一起也能抓到更多的浪。他还会激发你尝试新的目标。有任何问题他都认真耐心回答。强烈推荐!

Best Surf Lesson
Jan 2020 • Solo
I came in a complete novice and had Alberto has a teacher all to myself and he whipped me into shape. Really the most efficient and passionate about what he does, I learned how to keep my calm and went from falling off the board to feeling like I had control over standing on the board and surfing the waves.
Will definitely take the lessons Alberto taught me into other aspects of my life, muchas gracias Alberto! I’ll be back!!

Fantastic lessons for beginners
Alberto and Andres were incredible surf instructors for our family, all of whom are extreme novices. They were super fun but also great instructors, really pushing us to do things the right way. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

Great professional surf lessons!
Dec 2019 • Friends
Amazing experience. The surf instructor knows his stuff. Has been professionally surfing for 35 years. He was very alert all the time and he showed us all the surfing essentials. Although we hadnt done surfing before, we managed to stand on the board in only one lesson. Good price, 1,5hour class. Value for money. Highly recommented!
