Barbas - I surf in praia do barbas since 1990, and i had some of the best surf sessions in that spot. Its a right and lefts spot, and the waves are very fun and great for longboarding. its a very crowded spot, but if you respect the others you will be respected. Peace

- Only surf there when it reaches 1,5m / +, less than that is impossible to surf a nice session. Weekends ? Forget.. crowd crowd crowd crowd!!
