The best left barrel of The American Continent. Perfect and classic left pipeline from 1 to 3 meters approx. Dangerous reef closeness. Not suitable for beginners.
Be careful with the reef and with the crowd. When the spot is functioning, the crowd is impossible. Recommended with a North Swell.
Cabo Blanco is the Peruvian Tahiti...... It is really barreling; if you have a helmet use it !!! No words to describe the Barrels.......... Sure the best of Sudamerica. Don't drop in anybody or you will be killed by the reef and then by the locals.
