We won’t be the first to tell the story of Felipe Polmar and the Malole Surf House and we certainly won’t be the last. A Lima, Peru native, Felipe grew up around the ocean but didn’t give surfing a try until the ripe age of 14. A swimmer and competitive by nature, he took the surfing world by storm. The surfing culture in Peru in the 1950’s blossomed quickly as big wave riders from Hawaii began descending on the Peruvian coast to chase swells and introduce new surfboard technology that would alter history forever- big wave guns.
