Pico Alto Peru | Online Travel Punta Hermosa Peru

Part of the "Biggest Wave World Tour" series, the Pico Alto portion held at Punta Hermosa in Southern Peru has entered its "waiting period."

The "Billabong Pico Alto 2011" this year again forms the second part of the Biggest Wave World Tour.

This contest will take place between July 1st and August 31st, 2011, giving a two-month window of opportunity to catch the biggest south swells during that time.

Billabong as well as other makers of surf products - such as swimwear, beach clothes, wetsuits, and much more - sponsor surfing events that provide the needed cash so that the sport of surfing can be promoted world wide.

The prizes make it possible for top surfers to finance the required travel and expenses to different parts of the world.

Put on by Billabong, sponsored by Sony - Copa Burn, and supported by the surf-friendly country of Peru and attracting some of the top big-wave surfers of the world, this promises to be an exciting event.

The prizes at Billabong's event at Pico Alto Peru will amount to $12,000 USD, providing a good incentive to attract world-class contestants.


Among the surfers will be Jamie Sterling from Hawaii, winner of the 2010 PIco Alto contest and previous-winner Greg Long.
