Las Flores is just an O.K. wave, good for longboarders. The setting is very beutiful and relaxing. The peak right in front of the rocks has some power, but above 5' strong currents tend to drift you away from the peak and you end up surfing the rest of the wave's mushy sholder. Rides of 100' are common. It is also relatively protected from sideshore winds.

Truthful disclosure deserves better - Two stars here? Cmon.. Anyone who has seen any videos or photos of Donovan Frankenreiter, or who has seen has seen "Out There", has seen this place GOING OFF... I went back (third time) in January with my son and a friend.. Nuts. I realize circumspection and "respect" require nondisclosure of certain secret spots but when this place has two-page ads in the mags, well, the secret is out. Here's to more forthcoming ratings on the spots described on this website.

crowded - On a big swell everyone goes there. Certain Brazilians have no surf etiquette.

las flores "surfcamp" - just go up the hill right hands side and stay in the family run homestay for 5 $ a night the locals should get the money not the gringo tour operaters you don t need a boat to any of these surfspots unless your disabled and you cannot ride a bus swim or walk
