Praia da Vila

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