A unique partnership between WAVES for Development and Olas Peru Surf Travel enables you do just that by combining an Olas Peru Surf Travel Surfari with the WAVES Project.
Using surfing to promote sustainable development, WAVES has began an ongoing program to improve the lives of the youth of Lobitos in Northern Peru. Programs focus on swimming and surfing lessons, English language classes, environmental education and conservation, social entrepreneurship and nutrition. Volunteers are needed to help implement the programs while surfing the perfection of Lobitos.
The program consists of two parts:
Part One – A 4×4 surf trip with Olas Peru Surf Travel, travelling from point to point surfing remote world class waves through the Northern Desert Region of Peru, from Lima to Mancora on the far North coast.
Part Two – A surf camp surfing the perfection of Lobitos, helping ‘WAVES for Development’ improve the lives youth of this remote desert community. WAVES have been donating surfboards and together we help with education and surf coaching programs.”
Olas Peru Surf Travel have a wide variety of beautiful accommodation depending on your trip choice. One thing is for sure your experience will be everything Peruvian, getting to sample everything Peru has to offer.
Peru has over 1400 miles of coastline, where the surf breaks year round and with all types of waves can be found. The points, reefs and beach breaks receive their swells from storms in the South Pacific and also from major storms in the North Pacific. In the summer (our Winter) the surf averages 4 to 10 feet with some days easily reaching 20 feet. In the winter (our Summer) the surf averages 8 to 15 feet with days in the 20-foot plus size very common. Peru has an extremely large swell window, and it can receive swells from the South, Southwest, West and Northwest.
Peru is located on the West Coast of South America. Topographically diverse, Peru has many distinct regions from the Andes Mountains to the Amazon River basin. Located 10 degrees south of the equator in the Southern Hemisphere the seasons are reversed. Winter is from May to November and summer is from December to April. The coastline in Peru is extremely arid, air temperatures in the winter range from 60-70 degrees. In the summer, the air temperatures range from 80-90 degrees with bright sunny days.
Together with Olas Peru Surf Travel and the Peruvian based surf charity ‘WAVES for Development’ we at the ethical expedition company ‘Earth Sessions’ run community development surfing expeditions to Lobitos in Northern Peru. We completed a Pilot Expedition of the Surf Aid Expedition Peru, and Olas Peru Surf Travel contributed significantly to the success of that Pilot project.
The 7-day surfari was an ideal way to begin the four week program, with a fun and surf filled trip through the desert of Northern Peru. The local knowledge of Harold our guide, both in and out of the water, really made a difference. We got to surf the best spots at the right time without a problem. The 4×4 transport in ‘the beast’ was faultless and gave us peace of mind in the remote desert environment. The accommodation was also on the mark, with quality, clean and secure facilities right on the break or in the right part of town.
During the Community Surf project in Lobitos, Harold’s presence as a Peruvian, and his credibility as a qualified and experienced surf instructor made a big impact on the youth of Lobitos. He led the classes and commanded respect from the kids.
At all times OPST were professional, and results focused. Olas Peru Surf Travel’s connections and knowledge made the trip effortless for us, and ensured satisfaction from everyone in our group.
