Marisol (Itapiruba Norte)

When the other waves are closing out due a really big south swell this spot can be your only chance to get wet. There is a point break on the outside, but you need a hard paddle to get there, or a jetski. Infinite peaks can be found on regular days. Long and barrelled rights and lefts.
