Atmosphere

Although this is a fast hollow wave, the take-off is less critical than at Explosivos - here you are unlikely to get a face full of sand when you bite it!

General

One of the best quality beach breaks in the area. However due to proximity to Lima it can get crowded when it is working well, especially with body-boarders.

conchan - This is one of the reasons why Lima is one of the greatest places on earth for surfing. You can surf 3ft waves at this and nearby spots when the whole Peruvian coast is dead flat. This doesn´t mean that Conchan is a great wave, but it can have very classic days specially when a decreasing swell has formed good shaped sandbars. The sandbars at this stretch of coast (between Villa and Arica) unwind very fast though.

training - the southern most spot of conchan(to the left of the pier) is considered on good days like a mini padang padang, several peruavin top surfers practice here before going to indo....
