Pulpos - So, I have been to peru surfed a few different spots around lima. I stayed with my older brothers wifes moms house right on the beach at Pulpos. I stayed there for like a week staight, waves definetly not sloppy, there kinda of mushy given on the day but all around its an awsome beach break with some sick waves warning though shit can get heavy dont under estimate its power also really really be carful of the rip tides there are very strong other than that you got lovely porpoises chillin and a nice wave with not many surfers around but a lot of people in the summer time if your around this area check it out it might be fun

Ugh. - Went to check it out today. There are lots of signs right as you enter (or exit) Punta Hermosa to the Panamericana, they point to both Pulpos and Arica beaches. Drove around for a good while and found that there is no parking anywhere near this beach. So the idea of 'instant' access posted above is not true. There are some stairways going down to another walkway to finally get to the beach, but you need to park a good deal away from the stairways as they are in 'resident only' areas. The waves themselves looked like a pretty good beach break, but there are too many other waves nearby that have much easier access. We spent about 45 minutes looking for the best way to get access near the beach with a car and didn't find anything better.

Barrels - On a good day almost every wave you ride will be a barrel. SInce the waves's max height is 1.5- 2 metres, then surfers will need to crouch to get barreled. Bodyboarders don't need to. Perfect Rollos and some nice aerials too... Still, it's kinda hard to paddle in due to the rips.
