REAL is proud to announce the REAL Kitesurf Camp, hosted in Northern Peru August 5th – 15th, 2011. This camp is the perfect opportunity for you to tune your kiting skills in the waves with REAL pros and coaches. Peru is the perfect place for kiters to take their first kitesurf sessions in the waves, or for seasoned kiters to hone their kitesurfing abilities in epic surf conditions. Perfect pointbreak surf, with easy to access “channels”, allow you to ease your way into the lineup, all while very close to the beach. It’s an absolutely perfect set up! We chose August for this trip due to the reliability of the wind and waves. August sees over 29 days a month of 12m wind or better.
The REAL Peru Kitesurf Camp includes:
*In order to get the most from this trip, we recommend that you be at an intermediate kiteboarding level prior to taking the REAL Peru Kitesurf Camp. For semi-private, private or camp instruction to help you achieve this ability level, please visit REAL in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

We have 1 oceanfront private villa, plus several shared oceanfront and garden view villas remaining for the 2011 trip. Reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis. 50% payment is due at time of booking. Remaining balance is due in equal payments March 1st and June 1st, 2011.
More Peru Info
There are many ways to travel to and experience Peru, but there is only one REAL Peru! We chose Peru as a destination because of its consistent wind and waves, mild temperatures, and its raw, untamed beauty. On past REAL Peru trips, we scored some of the longest lefts in the world with great surfing and kitesurfing every single day.
Peru is known around the world, both to kitesurfers and surfers, as home to some of the longest left pointbreaks in the world. In fact, two of the world’s longest lefts, Chicama (worlds longest) and Pacasmayo (worlds 2nd longest), are both located in Northern Peru. These waves are world famous among surfers offering rides of over one mile in length, lasting over 4 minutes! There are many other waves in Northern Peru with similar length and consistency, and many of these waves are kitesurfable every afternoon when the wind picks up. Wind angle varies from straight offshore to side onshore depending on the exact wind direction for each day and dialing into the perfect break for your sport of choice.
For those of you interested in kiteboarding, the name of the game in Peru for kiting is “kitesurfing”! All kitesurfing will be done in the open Pacific Ocean with winds ranging from side onshore to side offshore and the ability to find any of these three on any day, depending on your ability and preference. Kite sizes typically range from 6m up to 14m daily. During the windy season, we see on average 29 days a month of 12m or windier conditions.
While Peru is in the southern hemisphere and August is technically “Winter”, northern Peru is located far enough north and close to the tropics to escape the chill of colder seasons. Average air temperatures in August are 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit, with temperatures dropping at night due to the dry, desert like climate. Shorts and t-shirts during the day and jeans and a sweatshirt at night will suffice. In the water, you can “trunk” the northern spots or be toasty with a long sleeved wetsuit tops. The more southern spots pick up a cooler current and will require a springsuit or fullsuit.
All accommodations and meals are 4-star quality with a choice of private or shared, oceanfront or garden view villas. All beds are brand new, and have very comfortable Tempur-Pedic mattresses. All meals and beverages are included with our trip. Wake up each morning, have a coffee, surf the wave right out front or utilize our guide service to find any other wave of your choosing.
