ince inmemorial times and for several reasons, man rode the big waves all around the globe. Centuries ago In Hawaii, "waves riding" was considered Godīs sport. Only nobility did it and the glory aura and happiness that embrace them while surfing made them look like Gods to peopleīs eyes. It elevated those who rode waves over common men.
In ancient Peru, "wave riding" was practiced since the beginning of civilization in this part of the American continent. Peruvians from the coast rode waves coming in from fishing in a daily and obliged ritual. To be a fisherman in ancient Peru you had to be a surfer, a reed boat surfer.
Times have changed, people evolved and so did men tools. Old wooden boards in Hawaii or Peruvian reed boats were replaced by modern and lighter surf boards made of synthetic foam and fiber glass, although the ecstasy feeling of riding a wave remains intact in the hearts and souls of those who ride waves today.
A special combination of adventure spirit, courage, commitment and the interminable search of the perfect wave characterize this unique tribe of men and women who travel the world dancing on the crest of the waves.
Peru is one of those privileged places on earth where nature's generosity offers innumerable breaks with waves from every size, from every type. From beginners to advanced surfers, children, men, women, there is a wave for every one in this country where surfing is possible 365 days a year, with lots of surf spots to be discovered and where many, many waves pass unridden.
