Lima, Peru


Peru has over 1,500 miles of coastline and though there are only a few locals who rent surfboards to backpackers and the pebbled beach and gray waters do not look appealing, it is still one of the most popular surfing destinations in the world as Lima, the capital of Peru, offers some of the best waves in all South America.

The waves range from a meter and up, which breaks in three sections – large, medium, and small – great for surfers of all abilities. These waves are comparable to those found in Hawaii, with significantly less competition for waves and crowds.
