About Chicama

At one time called the world's longest wave, one look at a map of Chicama reveals the hugeness and flawless symmetry of this lefthand sand point, and the wave can go on for more than two miles. Chicama has several sections, so paddling back out to the takeoff area at the top is useless -- simply surf your way down the point and then walk back. It's not a heavy wave by any means, so surfers of all ability levels can revel in the perfection.
