Mindelo can be on perfect days a classic wave with deep tubes.... its a fast wave that allows you do do big aerials in the junction of the waves!

Mindelo Boys - Only Locals! - Just stay away from this spot.The «Mindelo Boys» are a gang of old surfers always trying to kick you out of the beach.There was a man who, some years ago, was surfing with a metal tube in his hand and tried to scare those who were't from this beach.Good beach, but read the sign: «Mindelo Boys - Only Locals»
