Very dependent on sand flow. Hasn't been world class in a number of years. Sectiony left lines with occasional perfection on the good days. Massive currents and cold water. Paddle out can be punishing.
A reliable wave for fun lefts...hasn't been epic in 2-3 years.

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.
