Wayo Whilar Surf Shop
Many young (and some not-so-young) people practice this sport throughout the year—if not on the southern or northern beaches, then on the Costa Verde circuit. There are many shops in the area that sell surfing-related products; this one is particularly well known, selling surfboards and accessories such as ropes, covers and wax (brand names include XM, Gorilla, Sex Wax and Mister Palmer). The store also offers a repair service.
The best boards in Peru,form shortboards, super nice fumçnboards, the nicest lines on longboards, they have a brand new APS 3000 excellent shaping machine, the shop has a very good service, nice friendly atmosphere, Wayo is a very good friend and excellent shaper.
Lots of people make surf boards but this is a real shop were real boards are built by hand. Forget all the flashy posters (unless you like fine chicks in thread like bikinis), this place makes boards. It's off the beaten path and the sign is palm sized below the doorbell, but once inside you'll know what Wayo is all about.
He will build you a board that exceeds the quality found anywhere. If you need a used board fast, he's got them to. If you need to know where to go and what you'll find when you get there, he'll be happy to help you out. He's an interesting guy and fun to talk to.
If you surf and come to Peru, you have to stop by and see Wayo. You will see how real handmade boards are built... maybe for the only time in your life.
