soooo mellow. - Surfed here for a whole summer, never got sick. Water's cold so you get a windswell often, picks up a lotta swell. Go somewhere else for high tide or when it's really big. Great at 6-8 ft and low tide. There's a left and a right by the rocks on the south side of the beach (left of the access) and a better right further north near the end of the board walk. Sand bars shift a lot during big swells. Really great atmosphere, locals call it Afife, and its the first access road marked as such coming north from Viana do Castelo, just past the BP gas station. There's surf grafitti on the bus stop. Stop by in the summer and keep it mellow.
