5.0 out of 5 stars Peru Uncovered.... Finally 27 Dec 2008
By barley
Format:DVD
Peru - a country with one of the largest coastlines in the world and some of the best, most consistent breaks in the world. And so, it is surprising that only now people are beginning to realise this.

Peel: The Peru Surf Project charts the journeys of two different groups of surfers along the coast of Peru. It is a beautifully composed film and the surfing is pretty incredible too. The highlights of the film have to be: Chicama- the longest left-hand wave in the world and Cabo Blanco: A little-surfed big-wave spot in the North. Their expedition along the coast is interwoven with footage from Inka ruins (such as Machu Picchu) and cultural celebrations which does help to portray the rich mozaic that is Peru.

I spent seven months working and surfing in Peru and I do feel they have done its surf justice, but as for the country I was left feeling let down... at times the country is portrayed as a highly lawless and dangerous country... and they even claim that one of the surf breaks they visit is a feeding ground for great white sharks which is completely untrue!

But this should not deter you from buying the film. It is a truly incredible surf film which uncovers the surfing mecca that is Peru and will surely only be the first of a long line of surf films to focus on this incredible country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peel: The Peru Project - A Surf Odyssey 12 Oct 2006
By DAD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having been born and raised in Perú and surfed since 1966, I have watched and read everyting that is about surfing in Perú. This film is great, cinematography and the surfing was awsome. Listen to what Magoo de la Rosa says, you will lern about our surfing culture. I was also happy to see that these surfers also went to visit Machu Pichu, they did what all surfer's should do. Not only does Perú have waves every day of the year (never a flat day)all through the coast line, but it is rich in culture.

The surf community loves to show off our country, so surfers are always welcomed.

5.0 out of 5 stars not into surfing, but great film 2 July 2007
By Ice-Chrysalis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am not a surfer, and I've never really been interested in surfing... but my boyfriend grew up in Hawaii and loves it. So he introduced me to this film. Not only is it very artistic, it's also a really beautiful journey through a really amazing place: Peru. The music is awesome, the film is thoughtful, and the passion of each surfer completely resonates. The whole documentary has this kind of calmness to it. It captures the wonder and also sometimes the desolateness that exists in Peru. And the whole film itself is very relaxing somehow. It's more about Peru than surfing.

And girls: the surfers are also really hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SURFING VID 21 Sep 2006
By studio dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Just watched it for the first time and now I have to watch it again just to catch a better look at the shots! Great cinematography and great music. Only thing I found that I didn't like was the closing credits. They are a bit blurry and I had to freeze frame them to read the song credits. I loved the song 'Sweet and Lonely' and was able to find find it on the net at I-tunes under Nathan Paine. Time to go check out some of the other artists who's tunes are in this movie. If you surf or just dig great surfers doing what they do best just buy it....
1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible! 12 May 2013
By akrus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
It is terrible! This documentary does not show the real culture of surfers in Peru... the best part is only when the Peruvian surfers talk about their experiences. They only show very horrible shots of Lima and the small towns along the coast of Peru and I know that they have very beautiful places to stay and eat. It is obvious that they did not invest much in the production of the film. This was like a home-made video of the American surfers featured in the documentary and their vacation in Peru. It did show good places to surf and that it is not crowded along the coast so it is easy to find great places to surf without the beaches being overcrowded. But the other shots of Peru only showed poor people and the shanty towns they live in. Those do exist. But Peru has a lot of beautiful scenery and nice places to stay and good restaurants. They didn't show anything of Lima except the Waikiki Club. Lima is a large, metropolitan city with a lot of old historical buildings. It's a great place to visit. In the summer there are a lot of surfers along the beaches of Lima. This film only presented a few interviews with star Peruvian surfers. It did not present the culture of average Peruvians who enjoy surfing as a hobby and love the beach there.

The movie is so boring me too much even I was slept. I thought they were actors but I was wrong. They talked about surf on the beaches of Peru. Do not buy it.
