I am trying to get feed back on the best places to surf around Argentina. Geographical the region just north of Mar de Plata looks like it would attract a decent amount of swell from multiple directions; does anyone have experience exploring the points in these regions?
What are the communities like north of Mar de Plata, is there fully developed infrastructure, high speed internet connections in that region?

Developed with the impulse of tourism, Mar de Ajo is a perfect combination of the charm and beauty of its natural resources, the high quality of its infrastructure and equipment, the matching service and the hospitality of its inhabitants. It is located 350 km away from the city of Buenos Aires, on the Atlantic Ocean.

Mar de Ajo is quite a relevant seaside resort in Buenos Aires Province which presents a warm familiar atmosphere.

Among its many attractions, Mar de Ajó offers its long beaches, frequently invaded by clams and shellfish .
The Fishing Pier, a 270-meter long concrete structure -the biggest in the Coast District- is ideal to spend an excellent day fishing.

James, can you read any spanish? This site is a guide to the argentine beaches with descriptions of waves and such. And here is a nice article on surfing in Mar del Plata with contact information to a surfing School, which may lead you to new information...
Mar del Plata should have good infraestructure including high speed internet all around.

I am also looking to do some surfing in Argentina either in March/April or June/July, but I hate wet-suits (actually, just cold water). Are the currents warm or cold? Is it wetsuit-suggested surfing? I don't speak/read spanish, so the surf website does me no good. This is a business/surf trip so the advice would save me a road-trip up to Brazil just for the surfing side of my trip, which would be nice but very time-consuming.
Also, what is the surf like in those months that I mentioned?

I am only guessing since I have no surfing experience, but my take at least about water temperature is that it will be cold anytime of the year as you can only find warmer waters to the south of Buenos Aires, notably in Rio Negro (San Antonio Oeste) in "Las Grutas".
For specifics on surfing in Argentina contact the association (surfrider Argentina) at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com
