if you are coming to peru and want a board... - I have a 6 3 shand dorian surftech in really good condition trying to sell, im staying in pacasmayo so i could email you pics of the board, trying to get 200bucks
one month in pacas - i stayed here for one month and scored it epic several times. it truly is an amazing wave not to be missed and i lost 20 pounds from all the paddling.. i stayed in the jukes but the place to stay is las faroles. cheaper and nicer.the line up was usually pretty cool with lots of waves to go around. the only problem was a FEW brazillians acting up. some of you guys need to mature a bit and realise we are all there to surf. everyone else there was cool as fudge.
Sol Y Mar hostal - If you're on a budget, I'd recommend staying at Sol Y Mar which is in the urbanization closest to the point. The owner is this cool old guy named Diego from Trujillo who runs the place with his wife. I paid ten soles a night ($3 a day) and you get to use his kitchen too. Each morning at sunrise he'd have water boiled already for my pre-surf coffee. Buena onda en Pacasmayo, muchos Brasileros, pero toda la gente es buena.
- Yesterday there were thirty (30) surfers in the water, it was about head high. 20 of those surfers were together and u guessed it they were Brazillian. Any other questions?

Brasilerito maricon - This wave is for us the locals ,,,, and we locals hate "la brachicada" which means groups of 10 to 15 brazilians hanging together and surfing toguether ,,, so please stay at home or go to Costa Rica,,,,Americans and brazilian chicks are well accepted in Pacasmayo,,,but fking brachicada stinks
Good wave, mellow vibe, but Brazillians? - I camped at el faro for two weeks and got it double overhead and empty all day for the whole time. A few locals, but no aggro Brazillians. The biggest day there, I timed a locals wave at over 3 1/2 minutes. Pretty mushy on the inside, but the outside paddle out spot gets hollow. It would be a shame if the Brazil nuts are really destroying the vibe of this place like some of the other spots that I have been to. I know you guys usually mean well, but smiles only go so far when you snake and hustle guys on every wave. As far as Brazillian guys stealing American girls...KEEP 'EM, we prefer brazillian chicks.
