Located in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Monte Hermoso is a fun beach break that offers up rippable and quality waves when the sandbanks are right. The waves here require a bit of skill to surf and break for up to 150 meters over a sand bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Monte Hermoso?
Gets good between waist-high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when smaller and a shortboard then a step-up as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is somewhat consistent (6/10) and will generally have a crew (7/10). The best winds are from the North and Northwest. The best swells are from the South and Southeast. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a spring suit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 21 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 10 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
