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.
