About El Huayaco

Huayco peaks up directly in front of the dry creek mouth, doing a 200m left point impression, plus a bonus short right. From a predictably vertical drop-in, tapered ripable walls fan down the boulders with a mix of crumbly lips to launch from and some sucky chandelier pipes at the shallower spots. Works on smaller swells than Santa and Pena Rosa and is a bit less intimidating. Better with W in the swell and incoming tides.

Quite high consistency so gets a crowd when the other points are too small. Again rocks, currents and urchins come into the equation.
