Currently being a little practiced sport in Chile, compared to others such as football and tennis, little by little surfing has been established in our culture due to our beautiful beaches that give us an ideal setting to practice the sport of waves.
1) Las Machas beach, Arica.
Ideal for first-time sports, as it contains a coast of strong currents and waves of small size, but durable, near the coast
2) El Alacrán Island, Arica.
Located in front of the Morro de Arica, this beach delivers waves of more than 4 meters high, ideal for more experienced surfers, since it is one of the best and most difficult beaches for the practice of wave sports.
3) Cavancha Beach, Iquique.
