1st Time in Renaca - Small waves with mostly closeouts, but there were a few ridable waves good enough for a turn or two.

powerful waves - I just surfed Reñaca, it´s a nice beach. Stay in Valparaiso at Rosa Nautica hostel, it´s cheap and nice. It´s easy to hop on a micro to reñaca. I didn´t see any rental shops around, but maybe in the high season there are some. i picked up a second hand board at surfer´s paradise in santiago and will be checking out some other beaches in the area. the locals seemed cool at reñaca. waves were mostly closing out, but some were giving short rides. feel free to email me for more info!

Deebs... - I surfed this place epic in late 2005 and for any Aussies out there it was heaps like D'bah. Solid, fast, punchy barrels, linking into each other to make some nice hittable sections. I loved it and the food, drink and chicks are sensational.
