General

Its a fun spot, you catch the wave when it its the rock on the left side of the beach, then u get pushed by the foam and when u gain speed u find a hollow section followed by a great, but i mean GREAT launch ramp.
+
It can get crowded in the summer and the lifeguards mite turf you out of the water. but usually when theres waves the tourists don't go in.

Tres Irmãos , Alvor - god waves in the winter swells. when there is a swell, you want to surf early in the morning because the winds pick up and the wave becomes blown out. fun wave, worth the drve.
