The legendary stories about the Pacasmayo wave are deserved. A week of riding perfect logo to mast plus waves for 500m to 1.7km has made us all exhausted and very, very happy riders. There is nowhere on earth quite like this. No wave this long. No wave this perfect. No place so much fun to stay together.

We had full brackets, insane conditions, intense high level riding, outstanding judges, livestream, beautiful sunset photos, culture, ceremonies, awards, parties. Another year of the Pacasmayo magic. And it's still firing out there.

The riders would like to thank Jaime Rojas. The visionary creator of this amazing El Faro Resort that makes coming here to ride this wave so much fun. Through Jaime's patronage of very special artists, sculptors, ceramicists, painters and musicians, we have learned about the Peruvian culture and how it is being honoured and preserved today. Riding great waves is the goal, but as the cultural layers grow here in Peru, we are all finding a deeper connection to this place that enriches us all.

We'd all like to thank the 6 man Livestream team led by Sergio from Lima. We'd like to thank our creatives Tritian Young-Glasson, Miguel Cortez, Sebastian and Tatiana, for their contributions to graphics, photos, videos, live commentary, and very good vibes. We'd like to thank the wonderful staff of the El Faro Resort, led by the inimitable 70 year old powerhouse we call Jenny. A special shout-out to the land and water safety crews led by Carlitos and Pedro for their tireless efforts across the event. Finally, we'd like to thank the ocean for all it's riches and for the waves bestowed upon us here in Pacasmayo.
