Peru is a wave kiting destination you can't miss. A country worth visiting by itself - taking in account wind and waves, it's a must-have-been-to..!!

Come with us exploring and kiting some of the longest lefts on this planet and experiencing this together with a great and fun group of advanced kiters - all this paired with having a professional filmer at the beach pointing his camera at you and Marc's video assisted coaching to get the best out of your riding..!!

There couldn't be a better way to discover Peru while at the same time enjoying a fun and effective learning experience that will have a lasting effect on your kitesurfing skills and pleasure to come. Marc has been holding wave clinics for more than 5 years and has developed a unique and effective method to coach you in order to get your wave riding skills to the next level. More details on the coaching here.

There will be daily theory sessions in the morning before you go out on the water to put that into practice in the afternoon. This is then followed in the evening by a personalised video coaching session to analyse and monitor your progress, defining your personal goals.

Explore the prime kite spots northern Peru has to offer and experience its best in an interesting and fun group.

Great combo of Marc's coaching in cooperation with the local guiding.

No planning required, just bring your board and kites, everything is taken care of.

Latest Firewire boards available to test.

Filming of your kite sessions for the video coaching, plus have a chance to take advantage of the opportunity of  a professionally edited video of yourself.

Kitesurf wave conditions and spots

Peru hosts some of the longest kiteable lefts on this planet. There are a big number of wave spots around and up to a one-hour-drive south of Mancora. Choosing the right spot is crucial and depends also of the amount and direction of swell. On top some spots work only or better with northerly swells, some better with southerly swells. Choosing the right spot is a complex task - a wise thing to outsource..!

The winds up north around Mancora are the strongest for riding waves, whereas more south the wind becomes a bit lighter. Pacasmayo in general has bigger and longer waves that remain fairly easy to ride, but with lighter winds. Also there's way more crowds - so it's great to first practice at empty spots up north and then come and apply it all in Pacasmayo.

Accommodation

Hotel Samana Chakra (Mancora)

We will stay at Samana Chakra Villas in Mancora. It's one of the best places to stay at and a great base for our day trips to the wave spots that are up to one hour drive away. There is no decent standard accommodation outside of Mancora, so day trips from there is the way to go.

The rooms are individual villas that can either be shared or rented as a single occupancy. There are ocean front and garden view options with different pricing.

El Faro Adventure Resort

In Pacasmayo we'll stay at the hotel situated right in the bay and furthest out from town. It's a great base as you can start your kiting sessions straight from the hotel without having to go anywhere else. The rooms are simple but clean and it's well worth staying there. The sunset drinks after a great session while overlooking the last waves of the day rolling in are classic.

Pro Wave Clinic

REQUIRED LEVEL OF KITING: You need to be fairly comfortable riding a surfboard, some first experiences with waves is good to have.

We will try to ride at spots that offer the best conditions and require you to be able to go out and get into the waves with enough skills mastering riding your surfboard in the surf (no matter whether strapped or strapless).

The main subject is to work on your wave riding skills, understand and get to apply the different aspects of it, learn to put it all back together and adapt your riding to different conditions and locations.

Terms and conditions

Please note that the wave clinic will only take place once a minimum of  5 participants are committed to it. The deadline to reach that is:  05 MARCH 2017

For reserving your spot we need a 30% downpayment. There are discounts for returning customers.

Group size:
from 5 up to a maximum of 8 participants

Language:
The clinic will be held in English, however Marc is also fluent in German, French and Spanish and can make sure everybody understands the content of the clinic.

Videocoaching:
You will be filmed on eight days, which is then put together for daily video feedback sessions.

Weather conditions:
Please note that we have done everything in order to maximise the chances to catch the best conditions for you. However we are not in control of the weather and there will be no refunds due to lack of wind.

No wind scenario:
Peru is known for its great wind consistency and by choosing to go there in May we added plenty of extra time for the wind season to get in full swing. In case of no wind the clinic will still take place as planned. The theoretical part of it proves to be very valuable information that will still be of interest to you even without the opportunity to practice this on the very same day. Northern Peru is besides the wave kiting more so an extraordinary and world renown place for surfing. In the unlikely case of total lack of wind Marc will take you surf or SUP to improve or get you going with that - the best sport to help boost your kite wave riding.

Further terms and conditions can be found here.
