Peru offers one of nature’s miracles, Chicama, the world’s longest wave stretching over 4kms! Chicama is a small coastal town in north-western Peru, located in the La Libertad Region, north of the city of Trujillo. Locals have called the waves at Chicama, from the top of the Cape to the pier, Malpaso, Keys, The Point, and El Hombre. The Point is considered the best part of the wave and is the most famous, often breaking for around 1km at 6 ft plus, but to ride longer than this all the way to the pier (2.2km) on a single wave the swell needs to be less than 6 ft. More than just Chicama, the Peruvian coast is littered with similar point breaks with big lows from deep down south sending the swells northwards, and many of the surf spots receive persistent offshore winds.
