I'm headed to northen peru (chicama)in about a week and am thinking about taking the longboard.  Most sites I've read all suggest shortboards.  Does anyone have any input ?

Yes, bring a long board if your on a scheduled trip. Chicama is a great place to be prepared for all conditions. I wish for all the years Ive traveled to Peru I would of had one at times. Also price the airfare for bringing a longboard and the tax at the airport etc. Maybe just buy a long board in Peru. They have A+ shapers. Travel smart and light and have a blast.
