Pan Am Games

A surfer slides off a dying wave as he surfs in front of the BUP Union naval teaching ship, which was carrying the Pan Am Games torch, off the coast of Lima, Peru. In the Peruvian capital, where dozens of schools teach locals and tourists from around the world how to ride the waves at beaches with Hawaiian names, professional surfers from across the Americas are preparing to compete when the sport is featured for the first time in the Pan Am Games.
