RE: chirimena

Posada del Gobernador it's a place with a great view over Chirimena town and bay. I've heard it's a great place to stay.

Chirimena is a great beachbreak, when a swell makes it's way thru. This year it has being breaking constantly, last time i was there a couple of weeks ago it was 6-7 ft both left and rights, with off shore wind... great surf

However Chirimena does not always break, but you can walk your way to Chirere a few minutes from Chirimena. Chirere it's choppier and a little bit bigger than Chirimena, with strung currents.

I like better Chirimena, and it is also a better spot for a beginner.

I wouldn't mind localism, as long as you respect em', and DONT DROP IN IN THEIR WAVES

Good luck, i'm sure you'll have a blast!



RE: chirimena

thanx a million for the info, i m sure i ll have a fantastic time...
c ya.

Did you have a nice Trip?



RE: chirimena

chirimena .... hablar de ella me recuerda a los años 80 y 90 cuando habian sendas competencias alli y se reuni muchisima gente del surf....  hoy en dia le hace falta mas cuidados, limpieza y cariño , aveces la frecuento pero prefiero chirere , que igualmente hay que limpiarla, cuidarla y la atencion al publico debe mejorar....  

besos  luly trotta.



RE: chirimena

I surfed chirimena in the 70’s and 80’s. “El Viejo Hernan “de Caracas

Chirimena is good when is big.
Keep going to chirere first, if chirere is so big that you can not paddle in , and is closing out. Then it’s time to surf chirimena. get ready to paddle for 30 minutes. Check out corralito, to the other side, rocks, fun sometimes

When chirimena is big, the water reaches to the homes on the bay. I surfed it, with only a hand full of friends.

have fun
