About Puemape

Splitting the super-points of Pacasmayo and Chicama, this left is a bit more reefbreak than typical point. The exposed shelf sitting in front of a rocky tongue of land, is very open to S-W swells and is usually a bit bigger than Pacas on small days. The drop is sharp with plenty of rocks in the periphery of your vision and it starts off fast and steep with some cover-up potential, before bending into the sandy bay and going fatter, but maintaining plenty of push along the tapered slopey shoulders. Summer swells can disturb the sand so winter souths are the go. Blows out really easily so it's early or nothing, since NE winds are fairly rare all day.

Eerie ghost town of dilapidated shacks with only a handful of fisherman in residence. Camping OK but you are a long way from help and the road in has claimed a few rentals in the soft sand. Urchins and more of those arm-burning rips flowing north.
