About Reñaca

North of Santiago’s Viña del Mar beach, are the Reñaca beach breaks, a very popular wave, especially in the summer, with an excess of learners on bodyboards. Like Ritoque, the action is all up the north end, concentrated near the pile of boulders that help hold the sandbanks and form some some short sharp wedges that barrel quickly before shutting down. Lots of ramps to launch off and handles some size, all tides and even a bit of onshore wind if you are desperate.

High 8s for consistency and weekend crowds as this is the major beach holiday destination in Chile. Might be some mouthy locals when packed but too many shifting peaks for it to be a problem.
