Surfing punta dos - Surfed here in '95. The best way to surf this wave is to backdoor the outside peak. It is an easier than taking off right at the peak, which I couldn't recommend. One of my favorite waves. Watch out for the inside, it gets really shallow.

confusing - the right is Punto 1 and the left is Mauro, better surf with small waves. The right is usually perfect and crowded. The picture we can see look more like Punta 2 which is NOT close to Punta 1. Punta 2 is much further one the right, after Intenendcia
