Beware for the fishers over the pier. They definitely don't like surfers. Also be very careful with the rips: try to avoid the pillings.
Malvina, named after Guerra das Malvinas (Malvinas War), between Argentina and England, is a very powerful righthander and an ok lefthander. The best wave there is the right that runs against the pillings. It's a square tube at it's beginning than it turns into a mushy wave on the transition between the outside and the inside where it squares off again.
When it gets like this, it gets very crowded though.
