Peru's New Wave

Peru's shifting coastline has created a new wave in Paracas Reserve. The break formed after an earthquake in 2007 triggered landslides that altered the ocean's floor. 'Huaco Point' breaks left over a sandy bottom and offers a novel challenge to adventurous surfers.

The swell measured around 6 feet on this day. 

Huaco Point is already being praised for the length of its left-breaking wave.
