With Morro Solar overseeing the city and the Pacific Ocean crawling on the sides, Chorrillos is our new Proteam athlete’s hometown. Jhonny Guerrero was born and raised in this small neighborhood where water is the place to be.
In Lima, Peru, the ocean is the biggest playground and Guerrero’s personal favorite. His passion for surf took no time to grow since very young. Johnny’s free time was spent at the beach, observing and mimicking other surfers in town and this gave him the spark to ignite his soon to be professional career. From a beach chair's cushion foam to his own personal surfboard, this Peruvian young talent got the support and encouragement of friends, neighbors and even pro surfers that saw his natural talent and skills.
As his love for the waves grew, so did his ambition and knowledge. With the help from the former world champion Sofia Mulanovich, Coco Fernandez and Gabriel Aramburu - plus the support of the Proyecto Sofia Mulanovich and the Peruvian Surfing Federation (FENTA) - Johnny caught the right tides to become one of the best young surfers from Peru.
Today, Jhonny is competing in the qualifiers to fulfil his dream to enter the WSL and Swatch is here to support him throughout the way!
Welcome to the Swatch team Guerrero! #KeepMovingKeepTicking
