Went back in the afternoon with a friend.  The waves were much more choppy and the onshore wind was very strong.  The waves seemed to only break when we were paddling out and once we got out there, all we got was crap waves and wind pushing us back to the shore. 

I stepped on a dirty nail or something that put a hole in the bottom of my left heel while walking from the car to the rock beach.  The exit via the rocks was especially painful and frustrating.  I hope to progress my surfing a bit more so that I never have to come back to Makaja again.  Most of my paddling strokes hit some kind of trash that was floating in the water.

The cheapest rental price for a foam board that we could find was S/. 20 per hour.  If you do 2 sessions a day, this equates to S/. 80 (about $27) per day which is outrageous considering the board's tip was held together with duct tape!  They wanted us to pay even more (S/. 30 / $10 per hour) which was just a straight rip off.  If you're going to be surfing in Lima for more than a couple weeks, it's better to just go down to the Sunset shop and buy a brand new board for about $280 and then sell that used when you leave.
