Atmosphere

It's not a very frequent wave, but very perfect and clean when it breaks. In small days, fishing boats take the place, making it difficult to surf. Be prepared to very cold water (about 15 degrees celcius), a long wetsuit is frequently necessary. The offshore winds blows most days of the year, making the conditions good, but the best wave season for swell arrivals is fall and winter. Very good spot to the beginners when it it's small.

General

It is a good spot to check when the south swell is closing out in other famous waves like Itauna, and Massambaba (1h car drive). Not worth the paddle over southerlies winds.

- No problem with fishboat and the water is not always cold. Always break. Classic waves sometimes.
