Ritoque is where Chilean surfing was born.
The waves are bigger on the southern part of the beach but paddling out is hard when big. The waves in the northern part of the beach are smaller, but there is a channel to paddle out.
A fun spot.

- Really fun spot. Was there a week ago and rode it for 3 days, twice a day on both tides. Little frustrating the size fluctuation. First day was crankin 6ft woke up to 2ft the next. Was still fun to get in water and get some footage. Make sure you check surf report before you go there because there aint much ele to do than surf! good luck! Ryan

quality wave - This wave must be a regional classic, when breakes you can get a long ride with tube sections. Here you always have waves no matter the swell power.
