Piscinas - This is the funniest wave you are going to find around, about that coment of what happened on the road to Talara. If that is true, which I do not believe happened on the road to the city which begins which one of the most dangerous port of the country. So my advise as local would be, try to get early (at least two hours before dark) to Talara, and dont try to go there during night time...get "everything" you are gotta need early

- surf at your peril. a friend of mine got held up at gun point on the road from talara, robbed his ass and shot his driver in the leg. enough said...
