The wave is fast and poweful. The drop is difficult, and with a big swell you can find strong fluent. Be carefull with some reefs that you cant see with high tide.
Classical wave. Visit it and enjoy, is better than a lot of spots in lima.

Fun wave - So here's my two cents on the wave. It is a very fun absolutely zero consequences set up. The sand bottom point is very user friendly. Having said this it is not the kind of wave I would go to Peru or even the area it is in for. There are a ton of more consistent, steeper and rippable walls both North and South of this very remote beach. There are no locals to speak of as there is no town within 45 mins of the beach. I'd recommend hitting it up if you were going back down to Lima from exploration up North.

Don´t listen to Know NOTHINGS - Don´t listen to these know-nothings like - Dan the man, East Coast Crew, Surf Expedition and Trestles Crew to name but a few. They have no freaking idea what they are talking about. Bermejo is a surfers dream, most days out of the year. Of course you can run into bad luck and not catch Bermejo at its finest, but on an average day it is good enough to satisfy both beginners and advanced surfers. On good days, it is unforgettable. Just make sure you do your homework before you go. Go when there is a south Western swell - 8 months out of the year. If there are sharks, they won´t bite. Too many fish in the water. But not too many surfers. Crowded is when you have more than 5 people there. The place rarely gets anymore than 13.
Stay stoked, and don´t let Know nothings limit you from the SEARCH!

east coast crew... sucks - I never heard about sharks in Bermejo. I never heard about to much crowd in Bermejo and I never heard about fat localism in Bermejo.. but you, east coast crew, sure you're gringos with a bad attitude and sure you have been there thinking that the ocean is your.. but now that I told you that, please don't bomb my country.
