About Punta Rocas

Peru's very own "Rocky Point" is also one of its most famous waves and the site of many a national championship. A highly consistent reef, thick and juicy, sometimes section-y, and it goes both ways. Holds pretty good size, but beware of a few rock hazards. Also beware of fishing lines on the inside. This spot is sort of like the Peruvian version of Lower Trestles, with a lot more swell.
