Session: First solid session of the new year

Written by Splaktar show Splaktar profile

Monday January 14 2008 05:00:00 PM

Surf spot: La Isla, Peru

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: No wind

Wind Strength: Light

Nb waves ridden: 5

Length of the surf session: 2 hours

Surfboard ridden: bodyboard

Fins: Yes

Weather and water temp: Overcast, 63 F

Waves height: 2m-2.5m / 6ft-8ft

Waves Quality:
- Powerful

Waves Shape:
- One peak

Description:

This was my best surf session yet this year. The waves were much larger than last week (6-9 foot swells, 13s period). Playa Norte was pretty sloppy so we went to La Isla which was great (low crowds on a Monday). Kon Tiki was huge (not quite ready for that yet) and La Isla's point break was consistent all afternoon. I thought that I saw Anali Gomez (young Peruvian surfer) but couldn't confirm it. Anyhow, I got in a solid 2 hours in the water (bodyboard) and caught a good 5+ waves. My bottom turn was a bit rusty so things started out a bit ugly. I was shooting out front and unable to really get in the tube, then I had to wipe it to avoid the rock wall. By the end of the day my bottom turn had progressed a bit but it still needs work. Best workout of the year yet.

Weather and water temp: Partly cloudy, water 60 F

Waves height: 1.5m-2m /5ft-6ft

Description:

I was back in Lima in May and found time to get down to La Pampilla for a little bit.  It was much better than my previous session (in which I fought the current most of the time).  The water certainly had dropped about 10 F down to the 60 F range.  With my 3/2 wetsuit I was OK, but it was a little cold (a 4/3 and gloves recommended in winter).

Surprisingly the place was packed.  Even the beach had a good crowd.  As always I saw a number of the regulars.  All together there must have been around 20 or so in the lineup.  There were also a good deal of people surfing just up north the coast a bit.  There were both lefts and rights available around the point break.

Closer to the shore I was able to catch some nice and fairly regular waves good for bodyboarding.  I went out a bit farther, but it was quite crowded out there.  There were also fewer (but larger) waves.  I was unable to catch any of the big ones due to the crowd.

There was a bit of trash both in the water and on the shore.  Apparently Petroquimicas Columbia had dumped a ton of trash some where in the water around Lima.  I guess a few weeks earlier it had coated everything, but the clean up was progressing and things were in better shape.  There were a number of clean up crews all over the Costa Verde working on cleaning the trash as more came in each day.

Anyhow, this session was a little shorter than usual due to the cold (not wanting to cramp up), but it was a good time and I caught a few nice waves.  I'll be back ASAP.

Session: Easter Weekend

Written by Splaktar show Splaktar profile

Sunday April 8 2007 04:00:00 PM

Surf spot: Mejia, Peru

Wind Strength: Established

Surfboard ridden: Bodyboard

Weather and water temp: ~25 C, 15 C

Waves height: 3m-3.5m / 10ft-12ft

Waves Quality:
- Powerful
- Fast
- Hollow

Waves Shape:
- Close out

Description:

Well the waves were indeed big this weekend.  But most of the beach is just straight and the waves come straight in without any direction at all.  This led to huge close outs that smashed down with a roar. 

There was a 5.4 and 4.3 earth quake nearby on Friday.  So this meant that the lifeguards weren't letting anyone do more than put a couple feet in the water.  Everyone was keeping their eyes open for a tsunami.  But the quake was up in the mountains and there were no major problems.

Sunday followed with 3 quakes just offshore in the ocean, 4.8, 4.8, and 5.0, around 8am.  I didn't hang around to wait for a tsunami or tidal wave.  But the radio was telling people to stay away from the beaches and that no swimming was allowed at all.  I guess certain areas near the beach were being volunteerly evacuated.

I found a few areas that might be doable with smaller waves, but in general I wasn't really able to find anything great.  The water was considerably colder than up north in Lima, but with the wetsuit it shouldn't be too bad.  I did not see single person (other than myself) the entire weekend with any sort of board or intention to surf. 

I drove up to Camana and then from Matarani to Punta de Bonbon.  Down near Punta de Bonbon there were tons of farms and no real roads to the beaches (though there were a few signs).  I didn't feel like 4 wheeling too much with the rental car.  I'd advise bringing some kind of 4x4 for checking out those beaches.

Surf spot: La Isla, Peru

Session's Rate:

Wind direction: No wind

Waves Shape:

Description:

After a few visits to Playa Norte, I decided to walk over to La Isla to check it out. Had lunch at one of the places in front of the beach and sat upstairs to check out the waves. There were a lot of children catching the small shore break with bodyboards.

Out about 40m from there was a nice right that breaks away from a bunch of rocks near the boardwalk area. There were a good deal of surfers in this area and some of them were able to catch the wave all the way to the beach, a nice ride. The only problem was that they had to dodge about 50 bodyboard/surfers in the way, and then at the beach there were tons of kids. I saw multiple collisions and many more near collisions. Lots of kids with very sharp pointed boards who didn't care who was in front of them. One Brazillian surfer returned to the hotel with a decent hole in his back from getting rammed by a sharp board.

Out a lot farther there appeared to be a reef break that looked pretty big and fun (Kon Tiki), but was a bit too much for me. You can enter near the beach (long swim) or you can enter up the boardwalk a ways near where the rocks jut out into the water (good swimmers only, lots of rocks).

The shore break was pretty fun with the bodyboard. It's easy to eat sand though. Huge beach area with few rocks. Waves closed out pretty quick here though.

The second area is where I spent most of my time and had a blast. I was able to avoid getting hit by other people (had to bail and duck under the water a few times). Lots of competition for waves but I was able to catch my share.

Nice beach area to take a break on between sessions (though crowded in summer). Local shops/restaurants with fresh fish, cold drinks, ice cream, etc. Not sure how busy this area is during other parts of the year, but the city is settled by a good deal of permanent residents, so it's not a total ghost town.

Description:

I'd been here before, but on a small day. This time it was a good sized day but with a super short period. Looking out from the hotel in the morning it was all foam and quite a mess out there. No one surfing here on a summer morning is rare. Things calmed down a bit by the afternoon so I decided to give it a shot.

While walking down to the beach we saw a couple people carrying just the tips and ends of their broken boards. As I was putting on my fins and such there was one guy searching all over the beach for parts of his board. After 20m or so he finally found a piece.

On a bigger day like this there were some really nice shore breaks on both sides of the beach. The north is the common area which is good on small days, but on this big day the south side had some nice tubular waves, but they closed out a ton. It made for some really entertaining wipe outs. I saw a number of experienced surfers having a lot of problems paddling out because they had to duck dive every 5s!

I finally gave it 2 tries, but all I did was duck wave after wave, sometimes having to stay under for extended time due to 2 waves coming in together. I got the snot pounded out of me and finally cramped up before being able to get out past the break. You better be a hell of a strong swimming to come here on a day with 9-11s period.

Description:

After starting out on Makaha it was much easier for me to catch waves here at La Pampilla.  They were a bit bigger and there were more of them.  It's less crowded too.  But still plenty of people out in the waves.

The rocks here are much smaller (but still rounded) than Makaha.  So I had some problems with them getting into my fins and causing some nasty bruises on the bottoms of my feet.   It's also a decent swim out to the waves (for a beginner/intermediate), but nothing too tough.  You can swim out in the middle where the water heads back out to the sea.  Then the waves are on the sides near the rocky points.

I had a blast here and didn't want to stop.  My fins were rubbing me a bit though.  When I finally did stop and get out of the water I found that my fins had rubbed all the skin off of my inner ankles (size of a nuevo sol).  I bought some fin socks after that adventure ;)
