A World surfing Reserve, Huanchaco has the vibe of an easy-going old-friend; the surf is always on, the people are laid-back and everything is a short walk from the beach.
Watch Peruvian sun-bathers and a few travellers interact with the rhythms of a sleepy fishing town, as you stroll the ocean-side promenade and indulge in a fresh passion-fruit ice.
The locals care deeply about preserving the integrity of the coastline and the tradition of fishing with reed surf-crafts - which historians now credit as the 5000 year old origin of surfing. From morning til the afternoon, ride waves with a handful of people f or join the friendly gang of locals for a social sunset sesh.
Amy has structured her career in nonprofit and public sector management around her surfing lifestyle - which has ranged from public health in Nova Scotia, women's rights in Cape Town, instructing Outward Bound in Costa Rica and disaster response planning in Lima. For 17 years she's travelled solo to surf-spots all over Asia, Africa, South America, Central America and North America. Amy knows an excellent surf-locale when she finds it, so she's in charge of selecting locations. She looks for the ideal alignment of swell season, wave quality, small crowds and breaks that are within walking distance to delicious food, an excellent massage therapist and meaningful cultural experiences.
John is founder and creative director of Simple Square, a web design company that is defined by remote work. Team members and clients of Simple Square are rarely in the same country, allowing John to take his work on the road to places where he can surf, mountain bike and windsurf. With over 15 years of remote work experience, John is as fussy about internet speeds as he is about wave quality. He’s a master of analyzing swell, wind, tides, bythemetry and is a hopeless nerd when it comes to board and fin specs. He’ll answer all of your remote work, board selection and other surf-related questions.
