- Wrong.. pic 6 is in fact Cabo Raso, and probably the sickest pick of them all, along with the dude bodyboarding, which is also the real Cabo Raso. There some pics of the wave that breaks in front of the Marina in Cascais (the ones with the tow surfers in them), and the two or three pics that show a seemingly longish right-hander taken from right in front of the break are actually a right of a wave that breaks a couple of hundred meters to the left of the main Cabo Raso break, which is right in front of the light-house. Roger? Over and out!

Wrong Pictures - Picture 6 and 7, and all "best surf pictures" are from "GUIA"...that´s a spot about 5 km south from "CAVO RASO"... And that´s where you usually do Tow In.

One of the best... - This wave works at least 20 days/year...everytime someone goes to Cascais or Carcavelos, because the swell is big, and they only surf waves below 2 meters, and if the wind its off-shore, its probably working...Be carefull...heavy wave, hard bottom, and dificult exit (from land)! Some bodyboarders and surfers from Guincho have been surfing it at least from 1995. Some pictures (with surfers) are from Guia...4 km south. New pictures posted...no more false stories.cya
