 Additional Information

A fickle right hand reef off of a peak. A ledgy barrell over rocks. Low tide can be high on the sketch factor, mid tide best. Needs a smaller swell, big lined up swells tend to close it out. While not world class an excellent and powerful right hand tube when on, a rarity in Peru. Also some mediocre beach break to the south of the right.

Atmosphere

Great food in Barranca. Go to the Don Tito right next to the break and try a plate of Tacu Tacu with seafood. Not to be missed!!
