Fue un día perfecto. Luego de un tenis, se vino la búsqueda del mar. Estaba grande todo, así que esta playa estaba reventando. Las olas estaban perfectas, lindas, nada atemorizantes. Nos quedamos demasiado tiempo. El día perfecto

Nothing really to write home about, except the session was interupted by my buddy get worked, snapped a fin off with his face (ouch!) then went for a little bounce around on the rocks!
Many thanks to the unknown wave kayaker who steamed straight in to help him out. It took me a while to get there and I dunno how it would of turned out without your quick response.

It's a classic le gurp.
Air temp: 4°C at first then the sun came
Water temp: 13°C, pretty warm for the season
My best trick: a long, fast and hollow wall with a big drop on a 2 meters wave. Because of the currents, I was happy to have my biggest board, a 7'3". (i am not Kelly Slater...). We were only 2 surfers at this peak and it was good to pick just the good ones.
Not so small...

llegamos temprano 7 30 en la manana, rapidamente nos pusimos los wetsuits y nos metimos al agua por la hora habia poca gente, dos personas mas en el agua, siendo esta una playa con mucho crow.
la ola se mostraba con una pico en el point pero formaba poca pared, igual fue divertido y de cuando en cuando sacaba alguna que otra ola de buena calidad. estuvimos en el agua 4 horas. luego hacia las dos de la tarde nos dirigimos a otra playa a seguir con la sesion de surf.

First time surfing and did not catch any waves. In fact I did not even stand up. I was more focused on just staying on my board.

Surf was ok, a bit messy for the first 30 mins but once the tide started to run out the waves became extremely hollow with some good barrels.
Weren't huge until a monster 6ft+ rolled through and sucked up onto about 6 inches of water.

El tenis fue maleado, pero nunca está de más unas olitas para relajar los brazos.
Las olas rindieron, habían pocas, pero las que venían estaban bien buenas.

lesson with Jr. it was a good day. first day out for me since july '06 in jersey so needless to say it took me a few to get going. freights is a beautiful place though. junior pushed me into most of these waves. didn't really work them much.

After a few visits to Playa Norte, I decided to walk over to La Isla to check it out. Had lunch at one of the places in front of the beach and sat upstairs to check out the waves. There were a lot of children catching the small shore break with bodyboards.
Out about 40m from there was a nice right that breaks away from a bunch of rocks near the boardwalk area. There were a good deal of surfers in this area and some of them were able to catch the wave all the way to the beach, a nice ride. The only problem was that they had to dodge about 50 bodyboard/surfers in the way, and then at the beach there were tons of kids. I saw multiple collisions and many more near collisions. Lots of kids with very sharp pointed boards who didn't care who was in front of them. One Brazillian surfer returned to the hotel with a decent hole in his back from getting rammed by a sharp board.
Out a lot farther there appeared to be a reef break that looked pretty big and fun (Kon Tiki), but was a bit too much for me. You can enter near the beach (long swim) or you can enter up the boardwalk a ways near where the rocks jut out into the water (good swimmers only, lots of rocks).
The shore break was pretty fun with the bodyboard. It's easy to eat sand though. Huge beach area with few rocks. Waves closed out pretty quick here though.
The second area is where I spent most of my time and had a blast. I was able to avoid getting hit by other people (had to bail and duck under the water a few times). Lots of competition for waves but I was able to catch my share.
Nice beach area to take a break on between sessions (though crowded in summer). Local shops/restaurants with fresh fish, cold drinks, ice cream, etc. Not sure how busy this area is during other parts of the year, but the city is settled by a good deal of permanent residents, so it's not a total ghost town.

I'd been here before, but on a small day. This time it was a good sized day but with a super short period. Looking out from the hotel in the morning it was all foam and quite a mess out there. No one surfing here on a summer morning is rare. Things calmed down a bit by the afternoon so I decided to give it a shot.
While walking down to the beach we saw a couple people carrying just the tips and ends of their broken boards. As I was putting on my fins and such there was one guy searching all over the beach for parts of his board. After 20m or so he finally found a piece.
On a bigger day like this there were some really nice shore breaks on both sides of the beach. The north is the common area which is good on small days, but on this big day the south side had some nice tubular waves, but they closed out a ton. It made for some really entertaining wipe outs. I saw a number of experienced surfers having a lot of problems paddling out because they had to duck dive every 5s!
I finally gave it 2 tries, but all I did was duck wave after wave, sometimes having to stay under for extended time due to 2 waves coming in together. I got the snot pounded out of me and finally cramped up before being able to get out past the break. You better be a hell of a strong swimming to come here on a day with 9-11s period.

Epic day!! 16ft swell in the open ocean, 8ft waves.
When we arrived we saw guys coming out with broken boards. I got a big ding in mine this day too, as did two of my mates. The water was completely crowded and at one stage no one could get out through huge, pushing whitewash. On the back it was smooth and high walls.

The forecasting were good yesterday and I woke up early to catch some waves. The first surprise was that I was completely alone on the beach. The sets were solid so I hesitated to go to surf. It was a good decision: I get some rely good waves. a solid 1.5m, a little bumpy but very hollow and long.
Air temp: 15°C, Water temp: 13°C
a beautiful right just a little bumpy but so fun!
