The beaches in Chile are almost ideal for surfing. I've been to beach breaks and the waves are fairly consistent. Once in a while a huge set will come in too. I've only caught the smaller waves but have been really happy to get a few, especially considering that I'm still not used to using shortboards (which is what I've been using here). The most famous place to surf is further south in Pichilemu. That's a point break where the best surfers go and where competitions are held.
What I also like is that the water isn't too deep when you're trying to catch waves
After a few more sessions, I hope to be able to catch waves easily and be comfortable with the shortboards. And if possible, continue to practice in Cali or somewhere with a beach. =)
