 Additional Information

La Boca always has waves, Punta del Piedra is the long beach on the other side of the river, if La Boca has no waves simply cross the river and walk until you find a peak. During the El Nino, La Boca was world class, but it can be crap and mushy or a horrendous closeout too on a west swell. Renaca has very good, but crowded peaky waves - compared to the wedge (?)Lots of Beautiful girls, but the local Renaca surfers are generally wankers. Ritoque is a scary big wave spot, Horcon has an excellent left point on monster swells this is an epic surfing coast

Atmosphere

Too many spongers, they used to have there own little spongy spot around the corner at Playa Amarilla, now they've migrated to La Boca. The beach is ugly and polluted, oil refinery round the corner. But between here, Ritoque -the very far end of a 10 mile or so long beach which encompasses La Piedra too, you are going to be surfing good to excellent waves every day, I know because I did for 2 years.

General

Scary, mellow, epic, frustrating, clean tubes, mush balls, smell of oil, big fucking sealions , a view of Mount Aconcagua to die for. Offshores howling off the Andes, cold Antarctic onshores. Basically a spot that can be crap or incredible and world class, depending on swell, river flow, banks etc. There is also a left point off the rocks by the fishermens yard that the spongies like, personally I wouldn't risk my fins.
