The Break

Peralta is a powerful and barreling, normal to long beach break that offers lefts and rights. It is a well-versed beach that has fun tubes, ripable waves, and tow-in conditions during winter. On big winter days, solid swells produce a barreling slab tube that handles up to 7-8 meters, called The Bunker. Shortboards and bodyboards are best here. Consistency is year-round.
