Early one March morning, two Lima-based expatriate friends decide to ride their human-powered vehicles through Barranco and Miraflores to the Costa Verde surf break, La Pampilla. Colin (skateboard) is a local economic development consultant from Canada, and Nicholas (bicycle) is a doctor from Germany. Neither knew how to surf before moving to Peru.
