Eucador and Peru coast journey« on: December 31 2005 06:12:00 »
i'm arriving into ecuador in 10 days. my plan is to buy a car and hang out on the coast surfing and slowly making my way down to peru.
are you going to be in the area and interested in joining me? or, have you done this trip before, any advice/tips?

Hey Frank that sounds awesome, i would definately be down to join you but i think my timing might be a little off for it to work. I will be arriving in Ecuador March 1rst, so i assume you will be gone by then. But if you plan on sticking around for that long then i would definately join you and split gas and everything. If thats the case, let me know. happy new year.

i'm not planning on being in ecuador in march, but my schedule is relaxed so i can't rule out the possibility. are you thinking of going down to peru?

Hey Frank, yeah i did plan on going down to Peru. Although, i don't have any plan really, Im just gonna go and see what happens. The only reason i am planning on spending more time in Ecuador is because of the warmer water, i surf cold water all the time so it would be nice to skin it, but that really doesn't matter. Where do you think you'll be around March, because im still contemplating flying into Peru or Ecuador. Nothings in stone yet. Keep me posted.

i can relate to your warm water desires, i was surfing (cornwall, UK) for 1/2 an hour last week before my head my numb.
I'm under the impression that you don't need a wetsuit in north-west peru at this time of year, if i'm wrong i'll definitely consider staying in ecuador and the warm for longer. at the moment my plan is to stay in ecuador for 4-6 weeks then 3months +/- in peru. i figure the waves and culture will make peru a more intersting place to be. so going on this schedule i will be in ecuador untill mid to late february. however, as i said before, my plans are flexible so keep in touch as maybe our paths will cross

i am under the impression that a wetsuit is not necessary in north-west peru till june, if i'm wrong i'll definitely consider staying on in ecuador in the warm.
my plan is to stay in ecuador for 4-6 weeks followed by peru for 3months +/-. i figure the waves and culture will make peru a more interesting place to be.
going on this itinary i will be in ecuador till mid-late february. but as i mention my plans are flexible so keep in touch and maybe our path will cross

Hey Frank whats up? Well, i didn't realize about the warm waters in Peru, that means i will definately be heading south also. But yeah, we should definately keep in touch, i would love to get involved in a road trip. I did something very similar last winter, except i drove through Central America, and it was amazing. A buddy and i did the whole coastline and i must say that almost all our money went to gas. So if you are looking for some help in that department i would be more than willing split costs. Cause having a car lets you hit those hard to get to breaks and camp out right in front of em, which is probably the best thing in the world. So just keep me posted i would love to get involved.

Hey Frank that sounds pretty friggin sweet. I hope our paths do cross, and when they do we score some perfect barrels. So ill take your info and try and contact you when im heading in. I was just wondering if you had any advice as to where to fly into for the cheapest tickets. I know it would be different for you, but i figured i would ask anyway. I havn't bought a ticket yet and im wondering if there is some airline i don't know about that is cheaper than the rest, or if Peru is cheaper to fly into. Just a thought, cause i haven't started researching it yet, so i thought i would ask. Have a good one. Buenas Suerte.

Hi-I'm a British surfer and I'm starting a years tour of South America in 10 days. I'm not surfing the whole time but I plan on getting up to Peru by March. I'm keen to find some quiet breaks and I'm also keen to split costs! Read your previous messages-sounds like a radical trip. Would always love to meet up with anybody-especially surfers-so let me know where you will be!
