kitesurfing, surfing, snowboarding around Santiago (Santiago de Chile)

Hi there,

I will be staying in Santiago for a 6 month internship starting in April. I love my boardsports but it is going to be a major pain to bring my kitesurfing, surfing and snowboarding equipment by plane from the Netherlands.

So I would like to know how likely it is to get good waves and wind conditions from April-August, how easy is it to get to spots by public transport? Are there any flat water kitespots around Santiago? If so, how gusty is tge wind? I am an advanced kitesurfer, but lightweighted so Protected content is what I like. I am still learning to surf though so 1,5-2m surf is my max for now.

Is it possible to do snowboarding daytrips from Santiago? Any price indications? How easy is this with public transport?

Thank you so much for giving me some insight!
