SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR EL DIA PART TWO

PUBLISHED June 12, 2014

One of the most interesting things about skating in Chile is the temperature drop. You might leave the house in the morning with shorts and a tee shirt on, but if you don’t have a proper hoodie or sweatshirt, you might be fucked come night fall. The reason for this is the unique desert/mountain climate that the valley of Santiago creates.

SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR EL DIA PART ONE

PUBLISHED May 26, 2014

Santiago is a really big, small city. It’s big enough that you feel like you’re in a metropolis, but small enough to get around fairly quickly. There is good public transportation (bus, metro) and taxis are cheap as well if you have a group of guys. The security, on the other hand, can be a big problem. Every day, at least once, we got hassled by security.

SANTIAGO DE CHILE MONTAGE – PATINAR LA NOCHE

PUBLISHED May 8, 2014

Skating at night in Santiago is much different than the day. The center is virtually empty and all the business people have gone home for the night. There are still many guards, but it’s much easier to get stuff done once the sun has gone down.

From El Centro to Las Condes, you have every kind of spot you could wish for. But with every big city, especially those with a strong economy, there are a lot of security guards and people to get in your way as well.
