Chicama or Mancora?

« on: August 09 2007 21:08:00 »

Hola Todos,

I'm heading to Peru for the first time in 13 years (means back before I used to surf). And I'm looking for some advice on what spots to hit.  I only have about 4 days after we do Machu Pichu and Lima.
Would it be better to surf Mancora area or Chicama area.  Any advice on best ways to get there, travel time, places to stay, board availablity at each spot (should I pick something up in Lima?), would be much appreciated.

Chicama needs big asouth swells to really work, which is not very commonm in that time of the year. Mancora in that time of the year however picks up good north swells.
