- Surfing in Peru
Peruoffers a large variety of waves, that are perfect for beginners surfing on longjohns, intermediate, and advanced surfers. It is noteworthy to mention that the northern coast of Peru boasts the largest left hand point breakin the world, located in Máncora; and it also figures the longest left-handed wave in the world, this one in Chicama. Chicama is over 4 km long and when finishing a ride paddling back is not an option - just get out and walk right back up the beach.Swells are generated far south and most of the spots get consistent offshore winds. The large number of surf spots make it easy to find uncrowded waves.
Surf is very popular in Peru; so much so, that the
2004female world champion, Sofia Mulanovich, is Peruvian. Magoo de la Rosa, a living legend of surfing in Peru, won the ISA World Masters Surfing Championshipin 2007. Lima, the capital of Peru, is also very attractive to surfers because of the variety of its waves.
