You have to pass "San vicente ", which is near Cerro Azul, and then you turn right after passing some fruit sellers. You'd better go with a surfer that knows how to access this place, it's quite difficult for a tourist to access this secret spot.

If you go to this spot I'm sure you'll have a great time..surfing..the best is that in Pepinos , crowds don't exist..aloha..
It's a great wave. I've gone twice and I had great fun. Only few surfers know about this spot.. It's an adventure to access this place. You have to cross some very small rivers by car. The first time we went with a van, and when we were going, the road had become mud, the van couldn't go up the road, because of the rain. My uncle Edward and myself had to go to look for a policeman to rescue us, we had my father waiting for us with a pregnant women..but it was fun!!yeah!! You should go there but with a 4X4..aloha surfers..
It's a great left........... Have surfed this spot on my last two trips to Peru, both in March. 1st time it was 6-8 foot, fast and hairy left toofast for longboard. This year it was 4-6 foot ,glassy early, and much fun, still fast. Wait for sets sometime but when they came they pumped for 10 minutes. Everyone in the water was cool and courteous.
