Paracas, Peru

Spot Details

Located on a State protected natural area: the Paracas National Reserve; this U-shape bay is just the place that you were not expecting to find in a worldwide recognized surf destination: flat water, uncrowded beach, reliable and steady wind spot; just 3 hours south to Lima (260 km/161 miles), half way to the famous Nazca Lines.

One of the best destinations in South America for beginners and intermediate to advance riders, due to the perfect conditions to learn and progress on the sport: the peculiar characteristics of the spot consists in flat water, no current or waves, no crowds; a huge 60-100 meters shallow water area; side on shore wind and a U-shape bay, that turns it into a safe and easy place, where you can always finish on the shore.

Paracas is a charming, residential and quiet town, with comfortable and elegant resorts and houses right on the beach and a few steps from the Kitesurf spot.

This discreet and peaceful destination will make you completely disconnect from the rhythm and noises of the big cities and busy locations… you can find yourself riding alone in a huge bay just for you, with an astonish desert landscape and crossing from time to time with some of the local fauna of the area: sea lions, Humboldt penguins, dolphins, flamingos and multiple species of birds.
