Chapadmadal is a classic beachbreak that haves a few waves to choose from , if its small you may find a fun shorey that gets hollow on the right day , and with a bit more of a swell you can have rights and lefts all over the beaches , beign a right close to the small rivermouth (wich also have hollow lefts) the best. Easy Parking , good people , just don´t drop in and be respectfull to surfers and bodyboarders.
classic wave i preffer the shoreys but the rivermouth rights/lefts are awesome too!
a good place to surf and score some good tubes.

chapa - chapadmadal does get good and hollow and does hold size , hollow beachbreak wich tends to go shorey on the summer and more of a pointbreak in the winter , lots of peaks to choose from , gets crowded but good attitude no aggro , ive seen broken surfboards there and i creased my boogieboard tho.
