 Additional Information

There is a left in front of the El Hombre Hotel in the middle of town, that works from 2 to 8 feet, about some rocks that pop out about halfway along the long point at Chicama. Locals often surf it, and it gets hollow. There are some rocks in the shorebreak you have to watch.

When big it can link up to the town pier, a very long ride, but is usually only about 100m. It never really lines up with the main point, about 1.2km further up the point, so if's often surfed separetely.
