Porto da cruz
By portdude

Rip Curl - When the Weathers right, there is Great Surfing down in Porto Da Cruz,  used regularly by the locals and they should know the best spot on the Island. Take care of the rocks and the strong current.. no lifeguards here. &nbs

Wave rebel - Dude, you shouldn't insult people like that, especially if YOU don't know squat !! The German coastline (the north sea coast and the Baltic sea coast), rings a bell ?
