Atmosphere

With ideal conditions (offshore winds -N/NE/NW- after a southern storm) it's probably the best right hander in Uruguay.
+
One of the best waves in Uruguay, both of them, the left and the right.
The right is a fast, short and hollow wave, the left is the cleanest wave in uruguay, long with an easy take off and a tubular section and then a very long wave to carve.
