Peru was the final stop of my 3 styles Trip. The main idea of this Trip was to experience all 3 styles wakestyle, freestyle and surf with the friends from LF crew in about 2 month! I started in Hood River competing at the Ro- sham and riding in the amazing kite park! Then I decided to go for some warm and steady wind in cumbuco, I spend 2 weeks training with my buddy alex neto! After being one month non-stop doing freestyle and wakestyle, it was time for some waves! And what better than Peru!!! I have never been there before but all the good things I heard about it are real! Warm and steady wind every day from midday till sundown. Warm water and a perfect long swell to hit with the kite. Friendly people and cheap life.
Julien Fillion, Gary Siskar, Tom Gimbert and myself were riding and photo shooting with Vincent Bergeron in spots such like Bateria, Lobitos and Mancora. It was a nice experience for me to have the opportunity to be living and riding with the Designer (Julien) and Manager (Gary) of LiquidForce Kites. We were staying together at Gary`s Hotel ( Samana Chakra) an amazing place to relax, kite and do yoga.
It was not the first time I was riding with Julien and Gary, but it was the first time I was living and photo shooting with them. I learned a lot about the brand and how professional the lifestyle has to be when you are involved with a brand like LiquidForce.
It was the first time for me riding waves. I used to surf a bit at home but never with the kite. I have to say Peru it was the perfect spot for me to get use to surf with the kite, the waves are really clean and easy to surf.
