What an awesome and exhausting day!!! Diana and I woke up super early and headed down to the beach where we met Carlos’ brother and were suited up and driven in a beat-up car to a different beach where the waves were better. After walking over some treacherous rocks, which were much harder to walk on than they looked, we spent some time on the beach practicing our form and learning the basics. Then we were off into the water with our instructor Paul, and our classmate Dante, a Peruvian lawyer from Lima (who ended us driving us home, which was amazing because the steps down to the beach would have been almost impossible to climb on the way up). Anyway, we all were able to stand up and ride some waves by the end of the lesson and we had a blast while we did it! I highly recommend Carlos’ company Pukana Surf School.
