Surfing in Chile
Posted January 8th, 2013 - 9:23 pm by from Zlin, Czech Republic (Permalink)

I would like to bring my friend to Chile which is fascinated about surfing.
Anybody would suggest best places and best time to go surfing here in Chile?

Any advice would help.

Thanks a lot.

hi Mishka,

I'm fascinated about this sport as well, though I'm about to start to learn it. Are you already in Chile? I arrived almost two weeks ago and am travelling now before I settle for a bit to learn surfing. Good places to surf are Pichilemu, Iquique, Con con...but certainly there are more, also depends on the skills.

Perhaps we can meet up somewhere, catch some waves together.

Hi Jill,

thanks for invitation.
Im already in Chile, living in Santiago but pretty much occupied until the end of march. Have to go to school and so on.
When do you think its the best season for surfing?
When are you planning to go surfing?

Have fun Mishka

In Chile the best place its Pichilemu in the 6th region. Its a beatifull city and there we have a lot of place to rent equipment and hosteling. But its far away like 4-5 hours from Santiago to the south.

If you want to learn in a near place from Santiago the best its ConCón, near Viña del Mar and Reñaca; in the dame way there its full of rental places but hostelling its a bit difficult.

Finally another place its Matanza, with great waves but its farr too... like 6 hours to the north of Santiago

I hope to help you, sorry for my English :)
