  • Description


    We are restoring an ocean front property in Lobitos. We are looking to team up with individuals who are chill but responsible like us. The property is located in front of the Lobitos Beach (the main surf spot).

    I chose Lobitos to be my home after living abroad. It's been a good 10 years and I've seen lots of changes since then. I even found a girl to marry me ;) However I still like to wake up, make coffee, look at the waves, and check the tides, and decide where to surf for that day. We have waves here almost all year round; surfing is our lifestyle . When people first come to Lobitos they often think that a war or apocalypse has happen here, the old part of town has been nearly destroyed in the 60's by the military and has yet to be restored. In addition to surfing, I enjoy gardening raspberries and blackberries (I fell in love with this after visiting Canada). I also like to skateboard and kayak when the waves are small.
