  • Description


    I am Richard , a surfer, surf instructor and surf guide from Peru , I have started an small surf company 10 years ago with an kombi bus, and now I upgraded to a Mercedes Sprinter , that I turned into a very large and comfortable camper van, where besides giving surf lessons at the beaches of Lima, I run an small cafe where I serve healthy food, in company of Olita, my rescued pup. I speak fluent english and russian, besides my native spanish. If you interested in the surfing lifestyle, the van life and discover Lima and its surrounding beaches, this is the best way.

    Besides learning and improving your spanish in Lima, I always get to travel to other interested places where customers hire me to go, and you will definetely get to surf with me, learn to surf or to give surf lessons, cooking peruvian dishes like ceviche will be also part of the learning experience.

    What else ...

    Lima is a very exciting city that you can explore even on a bike, lots of history and interesting places to visit but due to the times now, I enjoy very quiet and peaceful evenings at home, exercising , stretching , watching movies or biking around my neighbor.
