 Additional Information

This is yet another of Peru's majestic, long lefthand points. I found this on Google maps (it has made surf exploration way too easy!) and the scale Google provides suggests there is a ride on this left which can be longer than 1.5 km!
Because the headland is massive, you can have terrific protected surf from E to a SSW winds, which add to this breaks versality.
For the wave to be working, the swell is going to have to be a solid one which provides the size to ensure the swell wraps into the bay and to ensure that all of the waves sections link up.
If you get this wave to yourself, you won't forget it. It really does look like a classic wave.
Just be nice to the locals for I am sure this wave is not crowded because all the tourists head to Mancora, Pascomayo and Chicama in the north.

What has happened!!! - Next time I see a headland on Google Earth, I'm going to add it as a perfect wave! Why not!, every other fag does! I have travelled this region for years and this joint has been like a imaginary fantasy wave that does not really exist. How can someone look at a computer and decide this place pumps. Please go and die somewhere mate.

Once again I'll say it - No waves there...I live one hour north of there....and I have for the past 10 years.

That is not discovery. - Real big discovery you tool! If you had actually spent any time in Peru you would realise this spot is well known. I can't beleive you have continued to bang on about what the wave would be like and how long it is by looking at it on a computer screen. People have been travelling and surfing Peru for many years, all spots are known and this discovery of yours, breaks very, very rarely.
