The Break

Also known as Lobos. Punta de Lobos has many sections, depending on the swell and tide. It is a powerful and barreling, long to very long, left point break. Shortboards are best here. Consistency is year-round with the best conditions during March and April. The paddle out from Los Morros (island rocks) is known to be quite dodgy—take precaution, as timing here is everything.
