This spot only breaks one or two times a year. Some years don't break at all. A big N or NW swell is needed.
The spot is totally uncrowded, only surfed by locals (all people from Lima who have settled in the north shore, including me).
The construction of the new pier for the artisan fishermen 2 years ago has shortened the wave by 30 or 50 meters aprox, making it more dangerous, just like happened in Cabo Blanco almost 10 years ago.
