Chile #1 - I drove up to the point and there was one guy out. Air was warm, but water was cold put on all accesories including hood, but took it off in the water. It was small, but fun and good length rides a great way to start off my first day surfing in Chile

Surf is great - Hi, I'm for Portugal and a surfer for 14 years. I'm living in Santiago for a few months and went to pichilemu for a weekend surf and caught the longest waves of my life!

Pichilemu - Check out Hotel Bahia when you go, its cheap and secure with free internet. Its right next to the Copec gas station. If taking a bus get off at Al Centro and not the bus terminal.

Pichilemu Accom? - Hey,
I`m in Arica at the moment and will be in Pichilemu in about 3 weeks, just wondered if anyone can tell me if there`s penty of cheapish winter accomodation down there? cheers.
PS Paying out on the locals after surfng thier local is shit, some people are just scumbags, if ya don`t like the locals, stay home.
