pimentel rocks - its a good place to stop by, if you are in one of those surftrips, in the North of Peru...you can catch good waves, and have a lot of fun, the people, the food, everything its just so beautiful...

Bring a fish or a twin fin!!! - Pimentel is a great peak which is shifty and suitable face for a fish or twin fin. Sometimes a ripping current, and other times glassy and peaky. Have fun and enjoy great beach, great people and the vibe of Peru.Its a good resting place in between swells.Pimentel also has some local surfers who rip so be respectful!
