The locals are cool guys but respect then.
Beach were the WQS is a presence every year.
When the sea is huge don´t even think of going in the water, only if you want to die.With high tide the waves break in the rocks and the outside is hard to get

Costa da Caparica! - Só dizem mal, mas depois surfam! So não apanha boas ondas na costa que não quer...
Foi na costa que fiz as melhores surfadas com amigos, matinais de inverno épicos e finais de tarde glass tubulares perfeitas sem crowd... É preciso saber onde, com que vento, swell, maré e que tem de se surfar...

it's a sandbar issue - like many other sandy beaches, the wave quality may vary. in the latest years there has been an erosion problem that kept removing the sand from the beaches, so the good sandbars are now less common.costa da caparica, generaly, can't hold mid size swells without closing out, (well, it depends on the sandbars and on the swell's direction). it's just a typical beachbreak wave, were you can pull one or two manoeuvres before the wave ends. and forget those photos. definitely i haven't seen waves like that around cds for a long time now.what about the locals? oh yeah, they sure are a surf hazard. specially the ones who can't surf, or the longboarders that keep trying to learn how to take off in front of a guy that's just paddling out.i'd rate cds 1,5/4. go elsewhere.
