Day #1: Lima


Butch meeting the locals for an after surf beer.

Penascal (San Bartola)
We arrived into Lima at 2am Saturday morning and surfed at 10am. We surfed 40km south of the city in a bay called San Bartola. It has 3 distinct breaks. A left on the inside south bay, a right about 100 yards north of it and an outside right on the far north end of the bay. The two inside waves were head high , maybe biggeron the sets, we SUPed the right. I paddled out to the outside break for a closer look. Butch's friend Jorge, our guide that is from Lima, said it was a medium size day. The sets were double overhead. I didn't get to close because I didn't really know how far the sets would swing out. Most of the guy were surfing long pintails and good at it.

Looked good enough to surf, but the tide was working against it. About 2 hours after low tide this secret spot will be working well. A local surfer claims the righthanders will break as far as the eye can see! At least 30 yards or more.
