Thankfully the afternoons cleared up and in between two surfs a day I was able to hang in the hammock in the sun.
The water was cold so I hired a leaky wetsuit which didn't do much good, but had a couple of surfs a day. The swell was increasing throughout our stay, however I had lost all surf fitness after not being in the water for three months. I did manage to score a few long lefts and test out the new board. The longest left hand wave in the world (breaking for almost 2km on a good day) was only 40km up the coast and the locals said it was going to be good as the swell increased, however after a few surfs I realistically gave it a miss as I definitely wasn't in enough form to battle the strong currents.
So after a few days of relaxing we now start a 36 hour journey back down south to meet Pickles in Arequipa. We'll be back to the coast in a few weeks, hopefully in a place like this but with more sun!
