We did surf it !!! - In 1998 me and 5 friends of mine surfed this have. It's a very easy a nice wave to surf, specially for surfers and long borders. The have breaks over a rock reef which makes all look the same. Althought there a few other problems: (i)It's not that is to get there, 30 minutes to get there by a long walk and 45 minutes to get to the top (ii) the bay on the other side it's called the shark bay... (longborders don't miss it).

Pretty easy to spot - You will see the spot looking down from a paved scenery-spot about 5km south of Ribeira Grande. I didn't surf it, it looked really nice though when I was there and Ribeira Grande was too messy.
