Discovered by surfers in early 70’s this place is simply KILLER!! Night life, girls, easy going people and excellent surf conditions make Guarda one of the most popular surfing spots in Brazil. On classic days, you’ll surf long and barreled lefts on the rivermouth and you’ll still have the beach break providing multiple peaks to dissipate the crowd. It’s up to you to choose where to surf, but wherever you take off be prepared to get barreled and have fun.

Don’t miss it, many foreigners come to Guarda and stay long periods, just because they don’t fell like leaving!! So be prepared to stay longer there.
