I spent the last week of December in Mancora once. Really fun. Like Malibu in reverse. Since that trip I've seen pictures of Lobitos and wish I had gone there.

Pacasmayo was really fun. It would be especially good if you kite surfed I bet.

and....one time....Mancora disappeared....along with the entire town...in a huaico.....which is when the Andes
fall to the sea taking everything......buses, cows, refrigerators, mud, rocks.

the break reappeared after a while and all is well.

just got back spent 6 days in mancora 5 days right in front of the main break in Lobitos apparently once the north swells start hitting the sand at lobitos gets funky shutting down the break til may not to worry there are soooooo many breaks that handle the north swell mancora being one of them lobitos
is a fantastic wave looked up past the rocks whilst waiting for a set and saw a guy getting perfectly slotted in a totally round cavern at El Hueco a little beyond my skill level at my age surfed every day
2-3 sessions top notch surf trip


shakespeare for everyone
