The Peruvian northshore hides some of the best wave spots on earth. Here are just a few names:
Chicama, the longest leftside wave of the world, the “Miss Universe”.
Cabo Blanco, shelter of Hemingway almost sixty years ago and a place of world-class tubular waves. Lobitos where the long perfect waves regularly break on a surreal background of disused oil refinery.
The reputation of the waves in Northern Peru is second to none! Their abundance and quality is the result of an exceptional geographical situation: at the confluent of two ocean currents and at the edge of two hemispheres.
From May to December, constant wind wipes out that deserted and spectacular coastline. During this time, a unique combination searched by every waverider occurs almost undisrupted:
