About Pasamayo

Pasamayo is located 35km (22mi) north of Lima, nestled at the base of massive sand dunes with the Pan American Highway truck lanes dangerously perched above. Either park at toll and hitch a ride with a bus or truck, or get a boat from Ancon. Walking down the dunes is fun, but coming back up after a long surf is another story! The reward is a very powerful, well-shaped reef peak, throwing out plenty of tubes and long ripable walls. It’s very consistent and often too big, so a small to medium swell on windless early mornings is best.

Often empty in winter fogs, there are always waves here, but usually the size and ferocity of the tubes are too much for intermediates on the way overhead days. Take supplies to this super-consistent spot. 35km north of Lima, not to be mistaken with Pacasmayo, much further north.
