About Infernillo

When the swell is small and not quite getting into the bay at La Puntilla, there is a shorter left point within easy walking distance called Infiernillo. Often too fast for most average surfers, this full on barreling left is regarded as being of a similar quality as Punta Lobos. With no wind protection and open to all swells, it's worth checking on small to moderate size glassy days. Proper pedal to the metal grinders sweep over the rocky protrusions that build up the bridging sand, but predictability is hard to come by. Low tide will be faster, while high can improve make-ability, but the paddle-out is always fraught and getting pinned on the inside is guaranteed despite it's pointbreak status.

Strong, experienced intermediates upwards and it will have a fair pack on it when it's firing.
