 Additional Information

This wave works in similar conditions to Reef, so when Reef is fully working you can check out Cave, because is working for sure.

Cave is also called Sete Bafos that means Seven Spits, because the wave is allways throwing huge spray spits from the hollow barrels.

Cave - Sete Bafos is one of the heaviest waves in Ericeira, the Portuguese Bodyboarding magazine finds this spot so insane that they said if someone was going to surf there to notify them, so they can do a full article on the magazine.

In General :

- Very Shallow

- Very Sick

- Very Hollow

- Very Heavy

Cavar daqui para fora - To all who might concern. I have read and heard a lot about Cave and so many other places and the truth is.....like in every place in the world. Dont talk about it, surf it!
Every place can be a dream spot, depending on the day and your spirit. And if you scared....leave and let others enjoy it.

Cave - Cave can hold up a lot more then 2.5m...and is without any doubt one of the heaviest waves in Europe...
