Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Peru's surf culture goes way back to the ?Totora reed horses? ridden since 1000BC, and more recently, Felipe Pomar's world title victory ahead of Nat Young in 1965. A true surf city, Lima was first surfed in the mid 1920?s, as a dedicated group of riders formed the Waikiki Club in Miraflores, one of the first three surf clubs in the world. Peru's capital is constantly outgrowing its boundaries, accommodating one third of the population so crowds, noise and pollution are serious issues. Most surfers prefer to head to the quieter Punta Hermosa area, half an hour south, but surfing the city remains a viable option.
