This is a very DANGEROUS spot. I rated it for kamikazes not only for the wave itself, but because of the currents and the rocks. 1002 people have drowned here (playa de los ahogados means drowned people's beach).
The waves at this beach can get to be 3mts/9ft+. If you are not a good surfer/swimmer don't even think of surfing here, you could die.
There are some reef-breaks just south of this spot in Playa Las Conchitas. They are even more dangerous than Ahogados because they break in front of boulders.

Photos are la castilla (other spot) - The beach called ahogados is in el Quisco, only idiots that dont learn to swim drawn here...the wave actually sucks, dont have power, dont have wall only strong currents and you will see only bodyboarders here...la castilla is the power wave that only experienced surfers can ride, the only way out is riding or army hellicopter.
La castilla is near el tabo, just go north el tabo like 3 km then turn left and park.

Discrace...... - Aussie pride pffft... I'm from OZ and all this Aussie pride bullshit is nothing more than a redneck following it makes me ashamed to be Australian sometimes they way people go on (wankers)!! I bet this guy has a southern cross tattoo so he thinks he is killing it (looser)... Buddy don't go around talking up waves that you will never get the balls to surf!! I have been to Chilie and some of the waves are very heavy especially the beachies!! and i have surfed Shippie , Lunas , the Box.... wake up to your self and stop giving us Aussies a bad name!!!!
