Living and suring in Punta

I'm planning to move to Punta in Sept, find some work, learn Spanish, mix with the locals and surf. Just wondering how consistent the surf is there and where would be a good spot to rent an apartment - near city and consistent surf beach if possible. I'm intermediate level and surf a long board all year in Ireland, so water temperatures don't bother me. Plan to eventually learn to ride a short board properly.  I presume picking up a board when I get down there should be easy enough? Should I expect packed beaches? How quiet does the place get in the off peak period?

I live in San Diego (Del Mar), CA and I've been down there 5 times...  I'd bring a board...  They have boards but the selection is OK but thinks like FCS systems or more complex shapes have yet to get down there... This may be a good thing as it's a sign of the purity...  I own land and will probably spend more and more time...  The winter is definately bigger...  And I've caught some 10 footers (very rare) in La Barra on a great swell in December...  But for the most part the place is windy with many beach breaks...  Reminds me of north Florida...  The beaches aren't to packed in Dec but you'll see a lot of posers in the H20 in Jan thru Feb...  Everybody is nice (for the most part) so no worries mate... Enjoy your time...  Chris

Yes dear Hans, that is my country. I am Uruguayan (and not gay). We are all mucho macho and send (or export) all our gays to Brazil (if that is what you are searching for). You should visit us, good beaches and nice people.
