Pupuya - O'Higgins, Chile


Pupuya is a rural area with beautiful natural landscapes, astonishing cliffs, large beaches, awesome rock formations and an unmatchable biodiversity. The coastal area is framed in the valley by two mountains and more wind tends to be generated there than in the surroundings. It’s only 5 minutes from the well known spot, Matanzas. If you are a beginner it’s advisable to consult the locals about the best places to enter and exit the water. This spot has good conditions for jumping with the strong wind from the south and a small lagoon that’s perfect for freestyle.


Pupuya is more of spot for jumping than for waveriding as the wind, which is often very constant, is side onshore. You can usually sail there when the wind is weaker at the other nearby spots. There are rocks on the shore but the wave breaks over a sandy seabed with 2 or 3 very powerful sections and with low tide it gets very shallow.
