 Additional Information

Don't go in the summer time. The crowds are out of control and kooks are abound. Besides you cannot access it through the Balneario in the summer months, you must take a little side passage down the slope to the spot.
It can get really good and barrelly however it is normally fun and frothy. It is best when it is bigger than 3 feet and cranks regularly when other spots are sloppy or flat. At low tide watch the wipeouts unless you like to polish rocks with your back. Generally there is a mellow vibe, respect others and they will respect you although there are a few hot heads who try and swipe waves every so often.

sweet - When in Argentina this is my favourite spot. It's Rad. Argentinian locals are very cool. No stupid vibes in the water just pure surfing. This place gets way better than what the pictures show. Bring a 4 mil with booties if you go any other time than summer, it friggen chilly. Bring a good attitude and you will have fun.
