Punta Gaviotas in Ancash is an exposed point break that has reliable surf. The optimum time of year for waves is autumn. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast with some shelter here from south winds. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southwest. Best around low tide when the tide is falling. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks, local fisherman.
