Scary bottom! - You will need big nuts to get inside this spot, but once there, things wont be as hard as it seems. Its black, 100% rocky, irregular, and the water is so clean that you are able to see the whole bottom even when you are standing up on your board, wich is a bit scary!!! I would recomend studying the bottom at low tide, and surfing it at high tide. I dit it for a full week befora getting the courage to surf it. The drop zone is over a massive scary rock, and with the backwash it can get very hard to still get some water betwen your board and the bottom! Also, ask for information with the locals... everyone is friendly here, so just respect them at 100%

Anjos - This is a spot that is not for everyone! it made me think a lot before i dove in!Only a few locals surf there wen its realy getting on!3meters waves hit the rocks very powerfully, the rip currents are strong and you dont want to be caught near the sharp rocky shore. Although great fun not a tubular have all the way but very heavy... adrenalin rush all the time!

rocky bottom - I've never seen it working, but heard really good comments about it! I must say that it is the most terrifying rocky bottom i have ever seen in my life, very sharp and irregular. My comment on local surfers: brave... really brave people!
