    Ferrugem is well known as one of the most consistent waves of Brazil, always has a surfable wave. You can choose from the left corner (the best peak), the middle beach or the south corner (with south wind). This location offers a lot of action inside and outside the water, as Ferrugem also has one of the most popular parties of the region. Ferrugem beach is also very popular among the girls!
