where to go on the north coast?

hi everyone,
i´m currently in peru at the moment, and i´m thinking about buying a board in lima and then heading up the northcoast up until tumbes. any suggestions where i should stop on the way up, i have a few ideas like mancora, but thats about it, anyway thanks alot!



RE: where to go on the north coast?

Hey, Zorro is a bud of my cousins, the Torres brothers of Chiclayo. He can surf switchfoot also. What do you mean by "a little too friendly"? Is he like gay or something? I never got that vibe from him. I bought a killer sweater from him - his own log/brand. Peruvian cotton is the best in the world - nice and soft, like silk.

Best of best:
Cabo Blanco

there are many other spots too...



RE: where to go on the north coast?

just can recoment: organos, punta veleros, pueblo tranquilo, empty beach. lobitos, piscinas, el hueco got glassy tubes if lucky, mancora always full of people, a fight in the line up! you can move easy by camionetta between mancora and tumbes. the northshore rocks! wright me for more info!

You should of course surf in Lima first, then head north to Trujillo where you will find many clean and uncrowded spots like in Huanchaco (you'll enjoy the food and weather).  Keep going north to Puerto Chicama, it is suppose to be the longest wave in the world.  Ask the locals and you'll find tones of great spots.  Finally, stay in Mancora for a while and enjoy the natural beauty (although I am not sure about the wave coniditions, but it is sunny there).

We're two Canadians heading up the north coast on the 26th of October, following the First northern swell of the season! We have a 4X4 van and a really cool local surf guide with over 13 years of experience to guide us to the best breaks in the country.  We've already been on a short trip with him earlier this month and it was EPIC!

Check out the swell forecast for yourself and if you want in, contact us asap because we're leaving soon!

For an adventure of a lifetime try Nonura by Bayovar, Piura. I could help with transportation and camping as it is undeveloped. I own the rights to the beach and have started with digging out a cave. Let me know at hyatt4fun@aol.com and I'm an american.
