I had a blast working with Javier, James and Francisco on my multiple visits to Pukana. The instructors always prioritize your fun and do it in a safe way by asking for feedback on how I felt out in the water. Following their recommendations really upped my surf game quickly. Thank you Pukana!

I took private lessons almost daily for two weeks in November 2019. I had been to a surf camp in another country before but I definitely learned a lot more here in Lima. Instructors are all professional and are passionate about their work. Pukana seemed to have tons of equipment ready as well so no shortage of supplies even if there's a lot of people taking lessons at the same time. To beat the crowd, I could go before 10 am, especially on the weekends. Location is also a big plus if you are staying in Miraflores - I walked here everyday from my AirBnB. I would go back to Lima just to surf with Pukana again. Also, during my stay, there were surfable waves everyday. Definitely recommend.

These folks have surfing in their hearts and want to share their passion for the sport. Every time I have friends coming to Lima, I take them here. The staff is very professional, and you will fall in love with surfing and the Peruvian ocean after surfing with them. Gracias Pukana 🤙🏾

I spent a month in Lima surfing with these guys. My instructor Lorenzo was great, not only a really good surfer but a good teacher as well. He had me catching waves early on and taught me tons each time we surfed together. The owner Javier is a great guy, overall very happy with my experience. I took 2-3 lessons a week for a month, and every lesson was money well spent.
