It is amazing if you know how to surf it, since I am a local, I think it is one of the best rides in the country when it is epic.

About surfing - I´m currently staying in Chincha for the next 7 months or so and i would like to surf during this time. Where can i by a board and other equipment and since this beach isn´t good for beginners, is there another beach close that would be better to learn at?
Please contact me if you can help me!
