Long Drive - We rented a car last minute and drove down on a Sunday. Should have prepared more but everything worked out really well.  No one speaks English so renting a board was a pain in the @$$. We were able to rent two boards a 7' 6" fun

Maresias in June July? - Was thinking of coming down with my family, renting a house, and trying to catch a few. How are the crowds that time of year? What is the water temp like? Is the beach/town nice for little kids (4 and under)? What would it cost to hire (in $) help with my large family?

Marecas 4ever - When South swells pumps big, Maresias (or "Marecas" for those from São Paulo) is the place to be. If they come when East winds are blowing, you're a lucky man. On big days, unless you're being towed-in, be prepared to paddle like a madman and get some bone-cracking shakes (no canals). These photos are great and all but it should be noted that Maresias is not particularly consistent. Generally, you may spend quite a few days there without catching any waves. 2006 was definitely a unusually big year. Hopefully the swells will keep pumping in 2007! Peace.
