The Peruvian surf sensation, Cristobal, pushed himself to another level and withstood a wave that tested every inch of his endurance. Cristobal pushed through fatigue, mental pressure and a jellyfish plague to set a new world record by carving a wave 34 times. This legendary wave can be found in Chicama, a northern part of Peru where the geographical location and terrain allow for waves to last for a very long time. Cristobal said, “When I reached 25 seconds, I really started to give it my all. I chose to do carved turns because it’s the manoeuvre that fits best to this type of inconsistent wave.” These northern Peruvian waves are just a little gift from God to the world of surfing, maybe one day we can all ride this legendary wave! Enjoy!
