Peru

Peru has the four S’s covered in abundance: Swell, Surf spots, Solitude and Seafood. These are the S words that surfers like best, and while Peru is a country that is on the surf travel map, the third largest country in South America is still Terra Incognita to most surfers.

Peru’s coast starts just under the equator on the border with Ecuador, and ends at 18° south, on the border with Chile. That 1500 miles of coastline is almost twice as long as the Pacific Coast of California and three times the Atlantic Coast of Florida.

The long and arid stretch of Peruvian coastline faces both Southwest and Northwest to pick up every swell generated in the Pacific Ocean during all seasons. Basically you can go to Peru any time of year and score surf! Most people know the place has incredibly consistent surf, but they overlook Peru and go elsewhere.

WaterWays offers packages based in each of Peru’s main surf zones (Southern, Central and Northern) that provide access to all the best breaks in each area. Custom itineraries can be tailored to combine regions for a complete Peruvian surf experience, or to include other wonders of the world like the Lost City of Machu Picchu.
