Surfing - Surfing Cabo Polonio - Uruguay

Cabo Polonio is a popular surfing spot, attracting enthusiasts from around the world due to its exposed breaks of up to 2 metres (6.5 ft). The best breaks are on Playa Sur, but Playa Calavera is better for beginners. Although the surf is good year-round, it is best between September and November, and March to May. On the plaza, Escuela Surf (Cel: 099-612-962) rents boards and offers one-hour classes. Harder to find (near Playa Sur) but more organised, Escuela de Surf Cabo Polonio (Web: www.poloniosurf.com) rents and repairs boards, and organises classes through private instructors Mario Grau (Cel: 099-026-837) and Ruben Mancione (Cel: 095-788-164). Most surfers use wetsuits, which can also be rented, as can skinboards.

Possible on all beaches but biggest waves on Playa Sur.
