South America is a vast continent and home to one of the longest waves in the world. Waves can be found along the Colombian coastline, Ecuador through Peru and down to the cooler waters of Chile and then on the Atlantic side, Brazil, Paraguay and Uraguay and also Argentina. Peru means Chicama and the longest left in the world, along with the chance to visit Machu Piccu, this is the ideal destination for the surfer / adventurer. Ecuador is an amazing country with some of the best waves concentrated around the Kuta-style mini surfing town of Montanita. Chile has some powerful waves hitting the cold Chilean Coastline, it’s consistent almost all year around, it’s uncrowded but spectacular scenery when you look at the coastline from the water. Brazil is home to the passionate Brazilians who are proud of the many kinds of waves all up the Atlantic coastline and across to the beautiful island of Fernando de Noronha. An amazing country with very friendly and welcoming, happy people.

Brazil is a really fun place to visit. It’s noisier in the water than out and some of the beachbreaks south of Rio are powerful and barrelling, The island of Fernando de Noronia really is out of this world.
