Program Info

Chile has thousands of kilometers of costal line and paradise beaches. While working in a surf school at the beach or at one of Chile’s beautiful lakes, participants will easily learn more about surfing, the Chilean culture and the Spanish language. Over the last few years, surfing has become very popular around the world. The amazing surf sports in Chile regularly attract its natives as well as international surfers. Many surf schools have settled on the coast over the last couple of years, and the demand is increasing. Some of our program placements additionally offer associated services like board rentals, shops, cafeterias or small restaurants.

Most of the program locations are at the central coast between Iquique and Pichilemu. The program placements at surf schools or Surf Hostels are highly demanded and places are limited. Chile Inside partners with several surf schools but due to this being one of our most demanded programs (during the Chilean summer from September to April), we cannot guarantee placements at surf schools. Applicants should be flexible to accept alternative offers/ locations.

Work Tasks

Depending on your working placement, you will have different kinds of work tasks. Some of them include:

  Attending to the surf guests (national and international)
  Board rental
  Cleaning and maintaining surf equipment
  Cleaning and Maintenance of the school/ site
  Supporting the teachers during surf lessons
  Assisting in marketing and sales
  Translation support (spoken, written)
  Working in the cafeteria

Accommodation and Board

During your Working Holiday in the surf school, you will live directly at the location. You will be either staying in a single room or share a dormitory with fellow co-workers. You will receive board in form of breakfast, half-board or full-board. This can be provided as already prepared meals, or you will receive the groceries or the money to go buy food in order to prepare it yourself.
