TRAVEL W BOARDS« on: January 15 2012 16:01:00 »
We're going to n coast Peru in May (Trujillo area). I see from this forum that it makes the most sense to get boards in Lima. What's the cheapest and most hassle-free way to travel from Lima to surf spots near Trujillo with boards? I've been told renting a car is a bad idea and that hiring a car w-driver or taking the bus is the way to go. Hiring a car w-driver sounds really expensive and taking a bus with boards sounds like a nightmare. Anyone got any experience traveling with boards in Peru? Thanks-

Im in peru now and have been coming here for 10 years. I can tell you everyone travels with surfboards on ther buses, they are big,air con, movies and really comfortable. They dont charge for the boards and I never had one get damaged. To buy a board try klimax surf shop in lima or vendotables.com. Best of luck.

Done it for years, big buses take your surfboard for a few soles extra. Take the cama (bed) seats downstairs for very comfortable ride with ac and almost flat bed

Thanks for the information- sounds like bus travel's the way to go. Does this go for getting to remote breaks too? Are there smaller bus services between smaller coastal towns or is this where we'll need to hire a taxi for shorter trips? Thanks again for the help!
