Lima, Sur y Tumbes Surf Sesh?

Postby goalie3443 » Wed Aug 31, 2016 1:41 am

I am back in the states but thought I would see if there are any other ocean loving types around the forums. I am a complete novice but would be interested to meet up with anyone looking to hang out or hit up the beaches in and around Lima on my next stay. Not sure how quick I will be back but we are trying to get back at some point as we have family in Lima.

I can't believe not a one of you here in the land of the lefts considers yourselves ocean goers....I have yet to be in Peru during their summer and want to know how much it differs from the winter months of July and August?

Is it different in the north like mancora during the peruvian summer too?

Mancora attracts beach goers year round, while Lima - on the other hand - has only three months of swimsuit weather: January, February and March, though wet suits make surfing a year-round possibility.

I can't speak to how hot it gets in Mancora during the Peruvian summer, but it sure was sweet last time I went in July.

In comparison, a trip to the Oregon coastline last month reminded me just how cool the beaches can be there. I needed to sweater-up in the middle of the day to watch my son surf.

i love the ocean. but am a bit inland here in Lima to make it very often. on the occasions that i have been, it's always crowded, and food served everywhere. i live in Los Angeles, and am about a 20 min. drive from Pacific ocean. big difference in scenery.
every place has it's own spirit. you just need to tune into it.

Whereabouts on the Oregon coast were you, Alan? Love the Southern, Central, and Northern coasts (best surf) and how each region is different, but it's not lay out in your swimsuit type of beaches, even in summer. I miss surfing.
