Atmosphere

Praia azul is the most consistent spot i know during the summer. If it's not working there chances are it's not working anywhere. Unless you want to drive to Praia Grande and share a single wave with at least 20 other not so friendly people.

General

like I said before it's a consistent spot, it might not be the most amaizing wave but it's better that nothing. When it's big it closes out too much and there's no point. Note --- I only go there when it's flat everywhere else, i've only surfed it ONCE when it was 6-7ft+ and in the 6 years that i've bodyboarded that was the only time that i broke my leash and lost both my fins because of ONE wave. And anyways if it's big there i'd rather go somewhere else where the waves are better (and where there's a channel)

Praia azul - very good spot , it works more with SE wind or E

By Mr Scott , 20-11-2003

Very good spot with SE wind - I'm surfing in Sta Cruz since 1988 when my parents bought a house there. Year after year the bottom (a mixed of sandy with rocks) change and consequently the waves change too. I can say that i had caught great tubes on high power waves with 2mt absolutely amazing. It works well with SE,E wind and a good swell NW

Best time to Surf - This is a great spot to surf but works better from March to September. The crowd is very good. Respects for beings respected.
