you need to surf this spot if there are not so many waves in Lima, because otherwise you would be looking at waves of aproximatly four meters, and very dangerous. Surf this spot with low wind, you could park your car any were near the beach.
This spot is very dangerous if you don´t know well the sea. When it is small, you can surf, but when it is big, it grows like 5 metres and it is a beach break, so it is very dangerous.
The wave works every day of the year, the problem is that it is pretty much a close out and it's out there for the brave. To get in you get probably between 10 and 20 waves on the head. on top of that you only get one wave because you will be so exhausted after this you will just want to leave, you will get out of the water with two boards instead of one, and your head aching like hell, this will be on a big swell that can reach more than 15 feet and 2 to 3 feet lips, on a small day it still be very powerful, but you can take it, there's is also much more shape to the wave. Have fun.
There are only waves, sand and where to park your car. There are no people in winter but some in summer. If there are little waves in lima you need to go to this spot. It is one of my favourites beaches because of its enormous barrel. An entire car could fit there.
The people in this beach are very warm, everybody surf, because most of them live there. The sea is amazing and you can go into very good barrels. Every single wave is a barrel, and in some you can go out, but when there is too much wind, it can destroy the barrel.
Full of lifeguards in summer. In winter desolated sad place with huge monsters roaring, as i said, out there for the brave.
I really like this place, the wave is agresive, it has a big barrel and it isn't crowded.
It is super, but it is not discovered by pros yet. We hope to keep it uncrowded, so don't come if you are a rookie.
Heavy, heavy, and heavy, take a lot of care and DO NOT get in the water alone, no locals no sharks, but let's say the poo patrol is not taking good care of the beach.

body surfing in the 70's - I remember back then when Erwin was the body surf king, he made a bet to us (Richard, Juanito, Manguera Zendon and me) that he would go in with a lit cigarrettte surf a wave and come back with the same cigarrette still lit.
Well, I am afraid he did it.

VILLA POWER - I surfed Villa in the seventies with the Succar brothers and Erwin Eulert. We had it all to ourselves. It was and still is considered a heavy closeout. But we knew when it was best to ride it safely; and we kept the secret for decades. Discover it for yourself......or die.
