La Pampilla looks just the same as Punta Roquitas with small conditions, but the shifty peaks develop into a better right in larger swells. Rolling faces and easy shoulders make this a favourite with the longboard crew. Small swells need low tide and big swells will hold up at higher tide when the paddling and duck-diving can be a chore to get out the back. There's more waves at the adjacent beaches of Tres Picos.
The Jose Duany Cup, the longest running surfing contest in Peru is organised there every year around February or March.
