General

Think of this: If only in Arica and Iquique there are about 10 perfect waves, imagine how many other perfect waves are out there in the desert. (just get a 4x4 vehicle and go exploring)

Iquique Glorioso - "El colegio" get his name because when the wave is good and big, you may look at the coast and see a school = colegio, a three floor building at the same level of the wave
