Our adventures on the Northern Peruvian coast are only just beginning, and we’ve already gotten a taste of the epic unexplored kitesurfing to be found here. After kiting for a few days in the more crowded surf town of Mancora, we moved south to the desert-ghost-town-hits-the-sea of Lobitos, one of the most strange and beautiful places we’ve ever been to. The area around the small surf town is criss-crossed with dirt roads leading out to point breaks and beautiful vacant beaches where desert dunes hit the sea. It gets windy in the afternoons here most days, and Mitch has already gotten some wave sessions in at completely empty secret beaches. We are looking forward to exploring more potential kiting locations in the days to come. In the meantime, the fun surf break and epic sunsets outside our truck’s door are pretty sweet as well.
…and so the adventure continues.
