Re: searching for spots in peru-equador-colombia

Do yourself a favour and try a couple of days surfing in chicama, the longest wave in the world. hmm cant remember the name but there's a kiting spot just north of i...

Re: Peru, Oct/Nov 2012 - need help!

Not sure about winds, but La Pousada is a great cheap hostel but you can totally still walk to the beach, it has a pool etc. Loki/the point if you wanna party too Also, chat to the schools/rental shops about excursions, often a few of them will bundle into a taxi for a 30 min drive to a windier spot...

Hi guys, I'm desperately trying to find info on kiting in Peru and Ecuador at this time of year. I'm backpacking there for the next 2 months and have a 10.5m Ion with me, but is there any point or should I just try sell it while still in Brazil?
