Los Lobos is for experienced surfers. The entry to the break as you will figure out requires perfect timing otherwise you could be bashed against some serious rocks. A very consistent spot, often too bit. Not an easy wave to ride, lots of water moving, heavy currents and cold water. 3 distinct sections make up the point with the inside being the most hollow and most fickle. North winds blow it out. Reliable spot.
A beautiful area, like northern California. Pine trees, cold waters, lots of marine birds and sea lions. Lobos can be a frustrating wave. Look at photos of the spot and you will see it is a walled up mass of water...not often tubey usually bit rippable walls.

- I got this on a 2 meter, 12 second, 230 degrees swell (acording to windswell) and it was a lot of fun. I was in for two hours from low to low-mid tide, there was a decent sized crew on it, but size a lot of waves to go around. A lot of power for a two meter swell. I spent a month in Peru (Lobitos, Pacasmayo, Punta Hermosa), and this has a lot more power for the size, but not so long or perfect. Anyone know what this is like on a typical 1-1.5 meter swell? I live in Santiago and wondering if it is worth the effort when it is smaller....
