For renting i would say easiest is to get it in Santiago and then travel to the spots, but maybe some of the companies do have some gear in Matanzas, here are the 3 that i know rent gear:

windsurfingchile.cl
wetfly.cl

For infraestructure i think Pupuya (its 5 min from matanzas) theres a place called "La Lobera" thats right infront of the beach with music, good food and most importantly cold beer. your mother can sit in a chair and watch you kite.

I personally prefer pupuya over matanzas. In matanzas the launch is sketchy. Eventually you can ride in roca cuadrada too (just downwind from matanzas).

I think that a 10 is way too much. I'm 60 kg and I use a board with boots all the time I've been in pupuya I always used my 7 mt and some days a 5 was going to be even better.

About renting an house don't even think to stay in Santiago: the road is in pretty bad condition and its about 2 hours drive (without traffic). In September-October you can find a lot of accommodations in the area.

Ah. Water is pretty cold be sure to have a proper wetsuit. I was in Pichilemu in January and people was surfing with thick wetsuit, gloves, shoes and hoodie.

What i meant with renting was gear BTW not accommodation, but yeah, stay in Pupuya or Matanzas for sure.
