Surfin In Sagres Portugal - I surfed in Sagres Last week of October and the waves was great, Sagres is a very nice place and have alot of waves to Surf. The Best place to stay is in a local Surfcamp called Sagres Natura Surfcamp where they provide food accomodation, transport to the different spots and lessons. The nightlife is great, Special Dromedario Bar on Saturdays with nice Reggae Dj Celso... Go there and have Fun

Spots Chile - th e better spot of Chile is Arica or Pichilemu,,no more.
Northern Chile is not for advanced beginners - I can't speak for the rest of the country, but northern Chile is rocky, empty, and has a lot of currents. You need a car, preferibly one with high clearance and knowing Spanish would be very useful.
Help!Surfing in Chile for adavanced beginners... - Hello!I would like (may be with two other friends) to go for a surf trip to Chile next year for about 2 months somewhere between July, August and the end of September but there a lot of points where I don´t have yet any information.Maybe you could give me some answers on my following questions. I would be really glad:-)... Are there spots for let´s say "advanced beginners" with unocuous beach breakes.(my surf-experience: two weeks surfcourse at Sagres/Portugal and a two weeks surf trip through Portugal, i´m able to take off in a "small" green wave with a longboard, but now i have a 6´10 and it causes still problems.) Do you know any cheap and good oppurtunity to take a surf-course during the first week to refresh my surfing ability? (last time I went surfing is going to be about two years ago)What kind of budget do you need for the daily-life (food, accomaodation)??? I don´t need a hotel...To get around, do you need a 4wheel drive or is possible to take a bus or to rent a cheap car???Is it dangerous to travel through Chile? because of crime...Is it a problem not to be able to speak Spanish???How is the weather during July, August and September??? Is there any area you would commend to stay/disadvise to stay???I know these are many question but I would be really glad if you could give me information on some of them. You can answer me directly on my email adress.Many thanks in adavance!Regards,
Surf in Chile - There is a place in chile not crowedwww.surfantofagasta.clcheck it out!!!
- Hi boardrider, if u're refering to Pichilemu, I think is a little far from Concepcion if u're planning to stay there on weekends, maybe you should check, Concepcion's sorroundings, Lebu, Cobquecura or even Curanipe. Be prepare for a chill experiencie
Wanna decent long waves?? - Hi guys,in my personal opinion surfin shouldn't be the main reason to go to chile, believe me you could be dissapointed, but if u're planning to visit the tourist attractions and surf is only an additonal go ahead. Anyway, this is a surfers site so let's talk about it. To the people who found dangerous surfin in the north region i encourage them to try the south-central region, skip viña del mar for certain and go to Pichilemu, 120 miles away from Santiago, there u'll find few but decent points with long mainly uncrowded rideable lefts, not hollow here, not air take offs, with an average of chest or head height. In adition you'll find reasonable spots for starters or kooks, u can rent boards too. in mi opinion the main drawbacks are 1) cold water, a 4.3 wetsuit and any other stuff like gloves will be fine. 2) currents that aren´'t dangerous at all but could be annoying to deal with them sometimes 3) Paddle: You need to paddle A LOT here over and over again specially with longshore currents. If yo decide to go, ask the locals for information they are nice and friendly people or in case u wanna some aditional info, just post your questions here. See ya
Pichi - I'm gonna be going to school in Concepcion from sept 9 until january but I'm planning on surfing and staying in Pichi just about every weekend and wanna find some cool heads to stay with, surf with, film with and explore. Let me know if your interested. Thanks
Unstable conditions - I'm here in the south now and apparently conditions are hit or miss and mostly miss with onshore and rain (it has been semi flat as well meaning days that would have been good were just mush balls). Got here the last week of april and heard it had been killer for the summer (and crowded) but i've only got it good two days in the three weeks i've been here and i can't say it´s been that impressive. Also it is generally expensive and the food is shit. Wait till next season and bring your wallet. I read this site fore I came here so i guess i owe something.
yaaaa - kooks,, keep posting away,, or take your chances and just go!!!
