Discription of surf spot: Huanchaco, Peru

The spot is a long irregular point which wraps around from the south for about 700m past the pier into the bay. Parking is easy on the front, but get someone to watch your car. The break can be surfed almost anywhere, although the most consistent section is south of the small pagoda on the beach (the 'mirador' on the Playa del Mirador') : several hostals exist opposite this with ocean-view rooms: way cool! Go in roughly opposite the 'storm' channel which makes a ford in the road when flowing. The break, although long, is discontinuous except under exceptional circumstances. When big the paddle out is hard and the wave can get fast and powerful. Mostly though its a fun 'performance' wave.
