Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Surfing in Northern Chile is centred around the wave rich reefs around the Alacran Peninsular and amazingly consistent swells swing up from the Roaring 40s pummelling the coastline year-round. A trench through the continental shelf only serves to amplify the raw power on tap here. Crowds are rarely an issue and often it is the opposite. Consistent southerly winds, predominantly (south-easterly) offshore in the mornings are the product of the cool Humboldt current and dominate the whole of this western coast of South America. Water temperature varies between 14-20ºC or 57-68ºF. Credited as being the pioneer of surfing in Chile, marine biologist, Sergio Santa Cruz first took to the water in 1969 in search of marine life as well as waves.
