SURF SPOTS: CENTRAL COAST - CENTINELA, HUANCHACO, CHICAMA AND PACASMAYO  

This Area is a little warmer than Lima Region, nearly all waves are lefts and most of them are very long, this is the case of Chicama ( the longest left on earth and Pacasmayo that seams like buses chasing you in water). This is the area of the Mochica people, ancient Peruvians that dominated this area 3,000 years ago, so we can find many arqueological sites around this area. This People are known to be the first surfers on earth, using their ancestral "Caballitos de Totora" (these are fishing boats made from the totora cane, similar in shape to surfboards). Temperatures here vary between 14ºC to 30 ºC, but the sea water temperature is colder the most of the times, is necessary a full wetsuit (3/2 mm).
