    A much needed break from tourism, Lobitos is a bit remote. There’s not much here apart from surf breaks, hostels and nodding donkeys. There’s a lot of oil around these parts!
    I came to check it out and do some surfing, or try to surf! My ribs feel okay, but the main break is quite a fast left handed point break, and my skills are not quite up to it. The water is cold and a full wetsuit is very much needed. It’s like British summer time sea temperature, but with good winter waves!
    A very cool place, but with almost nothing here. Old oil platforms dot the horizon, and there’s the odd dead sea lion on the beach apparently.
    The hostel was an old colonial house on a hill over looking the bay. It had running water most of the time, but was really breezy with old floorboards and most of the rooms have doors to the outside. I was given a cheap private room with standard death trap shower on suite.
    I’d definitely come back here more prepared and with my own kit!

    Lobitos and NYE

    January 1, 2017 in Peru ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    Lobitos is a weird small town that seems to have a small oil industry and an epic surf spot. There are about 80 oil rigs in the distance (most are abandoned)
    The surfing consists of two left hand point breaks and a third one 15min walk away. However we were skunked with the same old story. 'You guys really missed it. You should have been here yesterday'. Not quite true but you shouldn't let the truth get in the way of a good story.
    Anyway we have surfed and kitesurfed every day and bigger waves are on the way. Last night was new years eve which was a fun little party. We hung out with some Argentinian friends and ended up dancing at a small bar on the beach playing a good selection of salsa and reggaetonk. We will head off in the next day or two.
