Viking Team Rider and Free Surfer Thiago Testinha does the Peruvian Coast!!!

 We have been  traveling for  15 days, first stop was Arica, a very strong and dangerous wave, nice place with very good wines and quite affordable lodging.

Following the 12 feet swell  on March 25th, we scored Punta Roccas  totally “Classic” .There are good and constant waves around the Southern Coast of Peru: Punta Hermosa,La Isla, Senoritas, Knights and other beaches. the South is very laidback, with friendly people and many choices of hotels and houses to rent, the Ceviche is OUTSTANDING!
Now we are further North, at Lobitos, Chicama and  Pacasmayo, waiting for a 18 feet swell that is forecasted for the first week of May. 
  Peru is perfect for big wave riding, these swell are quite constant during this time of the year… more about our trip to follow/come.  Hasta luego!
