Sacor or Aterro - Is good spot to surf in the right conditions like matosinhos 4 to 8 ft E winds and W swell and Mid and Low tide it´s a good spot for learning

By Marcos Barbosa , 07-06-2007

the name isn't wrong - i know sacor ( praia do aterro ) for a long time and lukly i had the pleaser to work there for 7 years, i've been there since day number one and the reason to start calling " praia do aterro " was because there was the need to give a friendly name to the beach so that people would had the satisfation to go and eat at the bar.everyone who tasted the food know's what i'm saying.what's important is to catch some good waves, to see some chicks, and to eat a big hamburguer.kisses

- thats not the point.. the beach his recognized by the 2 names: sacor and praia do aterro.
