Silveira

Silveira can hold big south swells and offers epic days with long right handers on the point. The take off is tough and near the rocks, but once you’ve made it, just enjoy the track.

Silveira can hold big south swells and offers epic days with long right handers on the point. The take off is tough and near the rocks, but once you’ve made it, just enjoy the track. This wave offers both barrels and maneuverable walls. To reach the line up you can jump off the rocks or paddle, jumping is essential on big days. The beach also offers a few peaks on the middle of the bay, and its waves are also high quality and consistent.

The beach is very popular among the girls too, so…be there and enjoy it!!
