Atmosphere

Along with Arica and Explosivos, El Huayco is usually surfed when the point breaks are not working due to lack of swell.

Penascal, Huayco, Santa Rosa (inthat order) - near el huayco, there is Santa Rosa and penascal..WORLD CLASS WAVES. they will kick your ass if you are caught jerking off or doing something else instead of be paying attention.

By QUE RICAS LAS BOMBAS DE SAN BARTOLO , 05-10-2003

HUAYCO 3 STARS - This wave is one of the best in the south of Lima, there are always waves there, with small a medium swell. Sometimes is perfect and tubular, this wave have 3 stars and sometimes 4. El huayco es una ola de la PUTA MADRE Y RECONTRA FIEL CARAJO.

By huayquero , 21-05-2003

por lo menos 3 estrellas - Esta ola es buenaza y recontra constante debería tener por lo menos 3 estrellas.
