As big east swells are less common than others, locals are hungry for this wave when it’s working on the point break.
Best Surf Spots
Prainha (Little beach) is a desert beach just beside Guarda do Embaú, it’s easily accessed by a 30 minutes hike over the left head of the beach.
Discovered by surfers in early 70’s this place is amazing! Night life, girls, easy going people and excellent surf conditions make Guarda one of the most popular surfing spots in Brazil.
Gamboa is not a popular wave, but when a solid south swell turns to east, don’t spend more time, head to Gamboa and you’ll get a long and perfect right hander. This place is calm and usually there’s no big crowd.
Great place to run away from the crowd. Offers both right and left hander with long walls for many maneuvers. Occasional barrels depending on the tide flow.
