Peru is het land met de langste golf en toch vrij onbekend als surfland. In hun zoektocht naar een partner die hun surftoerisme een duwtje in de rug kan geven kwam Marcelo Morales van X-treme Sports Peru terecht bij O'Neill Belgium. O'Neill kwam met het idee 10 Belgische en 2 Nederlandse O'Neill riders uit te nodigen op surftrip naar Peru. Ze zullen bijgestaan worden door Alexander De Bruycker die naast surfteammanager ook cameraman is. Swell Magazine zal instaan voor het redactionele gedeelte en de pro pics. Ze zullen er een roadtrip van maken en de verschillende Peruaanse surfspots verkennen waarbij ze clinics zullen krijgen van lokale toppers. De filmmontage van de volledige trip zal op 10.000 dvd's, internet en op TV verschijnen en heel wat print perscoverage krijgen. Onze manier om Peru als toeristische surflocatie in de kijker te plaatsen. •Educatief aspect De O'Neill riders krijgen deze reis niet in de schoot geworpen. Ze moeten via creatieve invullingen (feestjes, auto's wassen, verkoop van O'Neill tools die ze gratis ontvangen, donaties via facebook, ...) een bedrag van 1.500 euro pp verzamelen. Op deze manier deelt O'Neill in de vorming van z'n riders zodat ze allemaal assertiever en communicatiever worden. Als ze echt iets willen moeten ze er iets voor doen ... dat is in "the real world" dagelijkse kost. Om een extra ondersteuning te geven in hun verkoop start O'Neill een online portal zodat ze ook online actief campagne kunnen voeren.

Pico Alto de hoogste surfgolven van Zuid-Amerika (4 meter). Weetjes 500 jaar geleden vormde Peru het centrum van het machtige Inca-rijk. De hoofdstad van dat bloeiende rijk was Cuzco dat letterlijk de Navel betekent. Indrukwekkende bouwwerken herinneren nog aan die vervlogen tijden. In het zuiden van Peru ligt tussen de twee hoofdketens van de Andes een uitgestrekte hoogvlakte, de Altiplano. Dit gebied kent een zeer aangenaam klimaat en daarom is het al sinds de tijden van de Inca's een zeer dichtbevolkt gebied. Hier ligt ook het Titicacameer, heet hoogstgelegen bevaarbare meer ter wereld. In Peru komen geregeld zware aardbevingen voor. In 1970 vernietigde een aardbeving de stad Yungay. Hierbij kwamen 50.000 mensen om het leven.

Surfing in the land of the longest wave in the world Chicama. Design by: X-treme magazine Peru Peru has been called the most consistent locations on the planet. The surf breaks year round and with over 1400 miles of coastline every type of wave can be encountered. The points, reefs and beach breaks receive their swells from storms in the roaring 40's and also from major storms in the North Pacific. Typically in the summer the surf averages 4 to 10 feet with some days easily reaching 20 feet. In the winter the surf averages 8 to 15 feet with days in the 20-foot plus size very common. Peru has an extremely large swell window and it can receive swells from the South, Southwest, West and Northwest. Punta Hermosa, just South of Lima is considered Peru's big wave location. This area of headlands, reefs and coves tends to focus the swell energy creating ideal surfing conditions. The largest wave in South America, Pico Alto is located here. Wind conditions in Peru are often very light and this in turn creates glassy waves year round. Because most of the surf spots in Punta Hermosa are reef point breaks, paddling out when it's big is not a problem, always dry hair. Water temperatures are comfortable. In the summer you can wear just trunks or a spring suit. In the winter either a spring or full suit depending on conditions. http://www.supportmytriptoperu.be/index.php?pag=3 (1 de 4)16-10-2009 16:27:11
