Perudise – Thrice is Nice

Posted in Less Than VHS on February 24, 2011 by SLUDGE SODA

A red eye, born date flight is the order of the day.

I must say, I really love Peru; the food, culture, waves and people have all come together on my past two travels and I look forward to this one.

The Peruvian elite really understand how to keep the po’ po’ and the rich rich. Perhaps, they just don’t have time to lie to their peasants and allow for the emergence of a middle class. Time is money, so don’t waste theirs? I mean, look at the Canadian middle-upper class; strictly a holding account of debits and credits between a couple hundred elite corporations and something fancily lobbied, err labeled, a democracy. What a waste.

By stifling economic development, concentrating the wealth: the well-to-do 2% live comfortably, the poor 98% get by and foreign visitors reap the benefits of a widened economic gap and robust purchasing power.

Enough with the how, let’s get back to the what.
What 1 – This spot absolutely lit up for 3 days. This was not one of the days, hence, the emptiness, but it was still really fun. Our first sight of this wave was afternoon onshore blow out. Three hours later, we rocked up and it was near dbl OH barreling perfection and both Dani and I had our best waves on our first drop ins. Truly a stunner of a spot.
What 2 – Up the road tourist town. Fun cobblestone point. Good vibes.
What 3 – Back to the first spot, pre dawn. These guys were stoked the swell was dropping as their 8 man fishing team went to work. Two guys laying nets out on SUP, two out in the trawler, one spear fisher, one gathering in the reef, one grunt and the boss man. This is what a sustainable fishing business should resemble, as opposed to the multinational 24/365 Longline fishing genocide currently in fashion.

and the beat goes on…

No cutting in line, budging, pushing to the front—everyone gets their turn. Snaking is not an option.” – anybody ever surf with l’anglais? slyest snake job around. putting the rope around your neck like a dog. boom. l’anglais just snaked you. stuck in a long-winded coversation with gilles. damn. l’anglais just snaked the y’all again. keeps the lineup on point.

“in the winter you will just be sharing it with one or two people” – that’s a fact, jack.
