 Additional Information

A very average point break, from 4-10 feet or more, and always about twice the size of Chicama, it is the very start of your long long ride on the 4km long Cape heading back into town.

You can paddle and drift all the way back to town if you want to start your surf out here, but the Cape doesn't line up all the way back to town.

Its only average, with a big sucky takeoff next to the rocks, it then goes fat and runs for about another 200m or so. You then drift with the current down the cape, picking off the odd wave along the way if its a big day. There is the odd peak about 300m further down, after about 1km you hit a point called Keys, after 2km you get to Chicama. Afer 3km you get to 'El Hombre' in front of the blue hotel, and after 4km you get all the way to the town pier, you also need to straigten out 200m before the pier to avoid hitting it. There is one final peaky beachbreak on other side of the pier if you are game.

Atmosphere

An interesting experience, the longest set of waves you will probably ever surf.

The very start of probably the longest series of waves you will ever surf. Get a cab to drop you off, and try it on a really big day when you won't have to paddle or drift much on the 4km trip back to town.I have done it all the way from Malpaso to the town pier-4km-and about 10 rides in all over about 2 hours.
