Balcones - This is probably the stronger wave in Talara's area. To surf this wave on its days takes a lot of years of search to get it which conditions work on it. I have surf this wave with my friends from Piura and Talara on more than two times, rides of almost 300mts and 4mts high...and barreling!
Don't losse the faith bra!
