. : Comments

Your average board is all you need at this spot, since it does not hold much size. A very shallow sandbar will make the better waves break top to bottom. On those days, better stand up FAST !!! On regular days it becomes an easy ride, with a forgiving take off, and a wall that will hold its size all the way to the inside.

This is a break different from the many others in Rio, since it has few residents around, making localism almost non-existent. Still, on a good day you might find 20 guys out, on a spread of beach of 100 yards. Respect the surfers around, and you will have no problem catching several waves.
