La Chilena - Not worth the visit for the traveling surfer. It rarely brakes and it is a really short break. It is more of a cover up than a barrel, if you are lucky, and yes the rocks a really near

wetsuit - I would stick to a 4/3, February is really the only month you can wear a 3/2 in south chile

coldwater - Travelling to Chile next christmas. Dec-jan period. What suit would you recommend? Staying near Algarrobo. From Ireland but live in Sweden so cold water is normal. 3mm suit during Irish summers.
