Visiting praia do forte - It is not clear how to get to the waves. What about september, waves are ok? what size?
Thanks

amazing!!!! - I went there two weeks ago. The waves are really good!! I prefer the left, its very long, fast and perfect. Be aware of the shallow reef though. For sure, one of the best surf sessions I ever had.
