If you like big and heavy waves, this is the place. Vila is one of the best waves in Brazil, it's a strong right hander that offers long walls after take off and ends with a sick and long barrel. Although the right hander is "The wave", you can surf the left hander as well, the left is usually longer than the right and offers infinite opportunities for maneuvers, but you shouldn’t go too far if you want to come back to the line up, unless you like to take a walk on the beach and get the channel again.

On the small days the left hander works better. Get there early, before the crowd.
