Cerro Verde in West Uruguay is a sheltered point break that has consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks and isolation.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
