Kai Bates has ridden a wave in Peru for 1.24 kilometers (4097 feet or 0.77 miles).

The 21-year-old stand-up paddleboarder from Ulladulla, New South Wales, is an avid wave explorer. The Australian has already surfed in a crocodile-infested tidal bore, so he is accustomed to unusual challenges.

This time, Bates traveled to one of the longest waves in the world. Pacasmayo, in Peru, is known for its endless left-hander. With the right conditions, you can have breakfast while riding this wave.
