El Gringo

LOS Buscagigantes episode 08: Ramon Navarro tells of the mythical wave of El Gringo in Chile.

Breaking on an island off the city of Arica, spanned to the mainland by a man-made causeway, lies a break which draws all the usual comparisons and then throws in razor sharp rocks, inquisitive local sealife and ferocious wide sets blocking the spiny keyhole.

This lump of reef lingers deep in Tour surfer nightmares following the Search here in emasculating kegs back in 2007.
