About El Olon

In front of the Hacienda Pocoma, inconsistent El Olon is the second biggest wave in Peru after Pico Alto. The long lefts get tubular at the right stage of tide, hold up to 20ft of S or SW swell, and should be left to experienced big-wave surfers only. There is a right also, that is shorter, but no less thick.

Heavy to get out through the boulders of the shorebreak and even worse to get in. Always way bigger than it looks from the road and cliffs. Proper equipment and a big desire to launch off the ledge and into some cavernous bombs. Crowds? You wish....
