The truth - Maybe in the last 25 years there has been a few ridable days.I have been going there since 1987, but not to surf. Due to the cliffs, the wind is onshore and the surf is mush that sections. No clean place to stay, no food, cold wet & windy. Great place to hike and be alone. If you want waves head to a place that is known to have waves. The reason nobody comes here is because its not worth it.

aaaa - I didn't find any waves there when i went to Sao Jorge, and I visit it all days. :(!

Just visiting - Hello, I'm traveling to Sao Jorge this summer because my girlfriend's family is from there. I was hoping to squeeze in a surf session or two while I was there. I would be alone because she doesn't surf. I have much respect for the ocean and for all cultures of the world and would like to meet some new surf buddies. I am not your typical American. If anyone has any advice for what size board I should bring and wetsuit I would be very grateful. Thanks
