"Surazo", Chile`s strongest wind, blows all year
round, but September to April is the best time. It is accompanied
by the Humbolt current with its swell & perfect waves
for surf and wavesailing.
The predominant wind during summer, spring and fall blows
from the south-west. It is generated by a high pressure
center off Central Chile and a thermic difference between
the fresh Pacific waters and the hot land. Very light in
the morning, the wind usually picks up at noon.
The best time of the year for windsurfing is from September
to April with winds blowing between 15 and 30 knots. It
can be irregular in off-shore conditions so windsurfers
will need a board with some volume. For unexperienced wavesailors
big fins are recommended to fight easily the current.
