comment - Great surf spot!

Vertical drop section followed by nice barrel. Then, fast section to spray some water out!

Locals are friendly if you show up with a nice group of surfer/sponger friends.

I confirm - I'm from Lisbon, and I can assure you that is a great spot, Ericeira style.
Better for bodyboard, tubes after the drop and aerials at the end.
The locals are as stupid as the rocks of the reef.
