same beach as Joaquina, but further south.
The Praia do Campeche itself it is located
in front of the Campeche Island, the
road leaves you directly there. When
it is breaking that's the place to be.
Needs big or good size S swells and W
wind. Works usually during the winter
on the coldest days. Some surfers compare
it to Jeffrey's Bay. It is for sure one
of the Brazil's best wave. The wage is
a right which creates long rides, with
hollow sections. Awesome even to watch.
When it is breaking always crowded, but there's always one for you. Strong riptides,
creating long paddles. Close to this spot there's another good one called Riozinho
(Small Creek). It creates hollow , powerful waves, with barrels and barrels.
It is located north from the Campeche main entrance, close to a small sports
gymn. Ask locals. With S,SE swell hollow rigths, with E swell hollow lefts. Best
winds W or really light NE.
check the peaks Igrejinha and Riozinho,
located further north, these peaks work
better on SE or E swell and use
to not get crowded.
