here is the unassuming storefront of klimax, one of the big board makers in lima. they have excellent shapes and reasonable prices, though i think the sales staff is fairly unattentive. i bought a used board there, and they probably should not have agreed to even sell it. it surfs well, but is heavy and takes on water. so i learned a lesson. buying new boards is the way to go and, at the same time, it's worth it to have a beater that you don't have to worry about. klimax is located on jose gonzalez 488 in miraflores.
