Top spot - Surfed this place back in Autumn 2003, was absolutely sick. 6/8ft perfect hollow righthanders with only 4 other guys out for about 3 hours. Was probably the best waves I have had in 4 trips to Portugal. Seems to be best around mid-tide as was stupid shallow at low tide and backwashy at high-tide, inbetween it was magic.
