Visitor Reviews of Pico Alto

Punta Surf Shop from PERU writes:

Pico Alto revienta todo el año desde 3 metros hasta 10, siempre y cuando el mar este grande, es mejor con swell sur para que la derecha tenga mas pared, hoy en dia siempre tiene no menos de 10 personas en el agua, es una ola pesada con mucha masa de agua por lo que se necesita estar en buen estado fisico para aguantar el revolcom.
