Pacasmayo is considered as one of the best places in the world for windsurfing. It’s a fun place for experts as it has very big waves, but it is also a nice, easy place for intermediates. The big waves often arrive at the end of April until mid June and at the end of August until mid October. The rest of the year the waves are average size. With the exception of February, the wind blows all year round and there is a light to moderate period of between 12 and 20 knots in the afternoons. With the big winter swells the waves are long and can reach mast height, but there are also good waves with the smaller swells. The beach, which doesn’t usually get crowded, has three sections with different waves, making it perfect for various levels. Important events are held there, such as the International Windsurfing Championship.
