Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
In this crowded surf world it is almost unbelievable to think that the longest left hand point break on earth is reeling along right now with nobody surfing it. The reasons why nobody bothers with it are not entirely clear. It breaks mainly on sand, is relatively gentle, is very consistent and is surrounded by a bunch of other super long, quality waves. It is also consistently offshore. This utopian wave is Chicama, but amazingly, there's more to this part of Peru than just Chicamas? endless walls.
