Ponta Preta - Hi there,

I am a local of Ponta Preta. This is one of the best waves in the Atlantic. But dangerous. Only for expert surfers. Best season: September to December, and then after February. From Dec-Feb it is normally very windy, better for experienced Kiters or windsurfers. Very dangerous: it is a very powerful wave, with a deep tube, right-hand, and extremely shallow. No place to make the slightest error.

Local Ponta Preta - Hi guys,

am a local bodyboarder of Ponta Preta, and just love it when it gets huge. It is a really good quality wave, very deep tube, shallow on rocks, no chance for errors. About some other comments: wind-season = december - february. Months without that much wind: mainly october-december, also after the windy season, february to April.

regards

Fernando

PP, keep it a secret? - This place is no secret since it was discovered in the early 90´s (by windsurfers, by the way). And locals on this island of stone, sand and dust might bee quite happy to find some tourist related work in a country that is absolutely dependant to foreign help and where a very high percentage of the male population has to leave their island to find work and support their families.
As long as traveling surfers behave themselve there will be no problems at this spot. Just don´t drink too much of the local rum during the very long flat periods (the place is very far of its north atlantic wave sources). Plus, there is more to explore on the island and some of the other islands of Cabo Verde.

Wake up you idiots!!!!! - Because of this fuckin´site and similar sites, my island(Madeira)over developed and is now lost. Because of peolple who thought they would make some money out of the surfers who would come to Madeira,there was too much exposure.
Don´t do the same to Cabo Verde,the locals don´t deserve the same that happened to us here. I´ve been there once, and I didn´t tell the world, why sould you?
As said before,let us find the spots the hard way, to better apreciate them.
