Chicama in Peru is a famous left-hander point break that oozes perfection and offers some of the longest rides on the planet. Last May, a New Guinness World Record in Chicama was achieved by the Peruvian charger Cristobal de Col. Check out the video:
Count ’em! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ……33, 34! That’s how many turns this young South American surfers managed to squeeze out of the single ride on the wave.
Yes – it was pretty small and not nearly as scary as a 10-second Indonesian double-overhead barrel. However, notice the level of fitness and strength this surfer has shown on this ride. Takes some serious leg strength!
Have a great weekend!!
