If willing to practice surfing in Peru you should follow these recommendations:
- Never surf alone.
- Keep beaches clean by taking your refuse with you, and do not disturb the marine wildlife that shares the sea with the visitors (dolphins, sea lions and seagulls).
- Check for the presence of undertowns as well as reefs and rocks on the sea bottom.
- In addition, remember that, depending on the area, in March or April (around Easter Week), tides tend to rise and the waves swell, increasing the risk.
