En route for Curanipe is Santos del Mar, Chile’s latest tow-in outer reef where 30ft lefts have been ridden, but the lefthand rivermouth at the coastal resort is much friendlier and often used as a contest site. The first section known as La Cruz breaks further up off the rocks (Curanipe means black rock) but the long barrelling lefts called Tres Peñas break down by the black sand rivermouth. It’s offshore with S-SW winds and fires at low tide.

Medium consistency (5/10) and rarely crowded (3/10).
