no title - La Barra de Maldonado es el mejor pico de la costa uruguaya. Cuando bombea el Atlantico rompe una derecha con fondo de piedra alucinante...tambien se forma una izquierda con fondo de arena que no tiene nada que envidiarle a la derecha. Solo hay surfers en el agua y el crowd es intenso en verano y pocos los fines de semana durante el invierno.

no title - Soetimes is a worlclass wave, 6-9 feet glassy, with tubular sections, not often.
