I´m Remy, a longboarder as well. Right now, i took a little holyday to go surfing in Brasil, but basically i kind of live in Buenos Aires. I guess I´ll be back there in november or October. The surf is nice, maybe not the best in the world but more than decent. People are extremely cool and it´s quite an affordable destination. I think i´ll go on a surf trip there when I´ll be back, we can discuss that later if u want to.
un abrazo. Chau.

Blake. As you are going to Argentina, haven´t you considered surfing in Uruguay (good waves, not far from Buenos Aires and water no so cold)?

I'm not sure if its still around but there's an Argentina Surf Spot Guide that is also available on line that is quite good. I bought the 2003 guide. i think it was like 7 bucks, but it was super useful.

oh yeah, i think the website is "surfargentina" dot com. it seems to be down right now, but south american internet connections aren't that reliable so it'll probably be back up soon i bet.

The best places to go surfing in Argentina are Mar del Plata and Necochea.
Mar del Plata offers a great variety of waves, mellow, barreling, etc. but perfect days dont occure very often.
Necochea has great waves too, but it is more affected by winds than Mar del Plata, where you can surf with N, NO, O, S, except E.
Local spots to go in Mar del Plata:
Cardiel, Yatch, Waikiki, Mariano, Diva, Horizonte (Barrels!), La Paloma and Chapadmalal.
Local spots to go in Necochea:
Quequen, La Escollera (greatest left in Argentina), El caño.
Go and check for yourselves, the night is great too cause we have the prettiest girls.

You seem to know quite a bit about surfing in Argentina. I am planning to go there in January or February. Is it a good time to surf ? What size of waves can i expect ? And what is the temperature of the water at this time of the year ?
Thanks in advance for your help. It's quite difficult to find good surfing infos on argentina, but i'm sure it's worth it!

the best place to surf in argentina is Mar del Plata, where tournaments are held.
Beaches on the south have the biggest waves, and there are a lot of pro's there

If anyone has been down during the month of March to Mar del Plata, let me know. I am on my way down and hoping to find some waves, looks like the swells have been increasing lately...
