Find the beach break 'Playa Norte' in Punta Hermosa (43km south of Lima) and paddle out to the really obvious break (700m paddle) - or go in at Senoritas and do an equal length paddle. Or take a jet-ski!

 Informations supplémentaires

This is one of the biggest waves in South America - holding waves upto 24 feet - bring a Gun in the 9-10 feet range. It draws big wave riders from all over the world and has recently seen tow-in surfing.
The wave only works when the swell is big and everywhere else is closing out. Tides are relatively unimportant - if the swell is big enough, then it will work. To add to the fun - the distance from shore makes getting positioned (and staying in position) really hard. Being in the wrong place is bad.
The big pacific swells which rock in tend to have big long sets (15-20 waves / set), which means timing and placement are really important.
If caught inside - watch out also for the reform shore-break on Playa Norte - when Pico Alto is big, this gets bad as well...

Atmosphère

Big, powerful and frightening. The only consolation is that the break is a long way out and you are unlikely to hit the bottom. However with half the pacific ocean on your head this probably won't be your main preocupation.
This spot is for experienced big wave riders. If you're not sure of your ability or fitness try some of the other local breaks first (Kon Tiki, Penescal, Punta Rocas...)

De rob , 02-08-2010

- I stayed in punta hermosa for a while and was surfing playa norte one day on my own when I saw four guys on what looked like longboards it was a very misty day and visibility was maybe 20 metres.o well i thought shit surf for me wont get any waves with 4 longboarders out.It was only when they got closer that i realised that they were all on massive guns.they paddled strait passed me and disapered into the mist.turns out that they were paddling out to pico alto i dont know how they surfed it with such shit visability but they did chargers.and i know it was big having looked at other breaks in the area must have been at least 15 foot although i didnt see it that day

Wrong Luzbelito - I don't know what luzbelito is talking about but even my 5 year old niece can ride santos, I've been around and to me (personal opinion) Pico is the baddest,ah, and I'm mexican.

De LuZbelito , 15-03-2006

Santos - Santos is the biggest (of them 3). Pico is prolly the smallest, whcih is not bad considering the other two are mosnters. peruvians will tell you Pico is the biggest thou.
