You can park your car right in front of the wave, its very close to Lobitos, and El Hueco.
It's a very fun place, you dont have to paddle to much,

Piscinas - This is the funniest wave you are going to find around, about that coment of what happened on the road to Talara. If that is true, which I do not believe happened on the road to the city which begins which one of the most dangerous port of the country. So my advise as local would be, try to get early (at least two hours before dark) to Talara, and dont try to go there during night time...get "everything" you are gotta need early
