There are 3 different peaks on this beach. The first, near the breakwalls, works better with a big swell and south winds, this peak produces a fast and hollow left hander. The second, between the breakwalls and the shipwreck, offers rights and lefts on medium swells and south winds. The last peak, further north, works on medium to small days and can is protected from NE winds, which are very common on summertime.
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.
A long beach break with infinite peaks to choose. It’s a good option to run away from the crowd. This place offers rights and left that rolls right after take off. Worth an early check, before the wind blows.
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.
Line up easily accessed by a channel beside the rocks. Multiple peaks offer high quality left and right handers with long wall and hollow sections.
Holds big south swell. When it’s really big it can be the your best choice. Lots of barrels.
Multiple peaks offer long right and left handers, excellent for cut backs. Another desert beach.
If you want to surf alone, this is the place to be, but remember that other spots nearby may be going epic. Better in the morning, without winds.
A long workable right beside the break wall and several peaks with rights and lefts in the middle of the beach.
Wonderful wave, when it happens you should be there. It’s a small bay surrounded by rocks.
