 Additional Information

It's not a hard wave. It can get hollow and fast on good days, so that will probably ask little more of the surfer. The wave is normally not very good on very low tides, it closes out allot and really pounds. We don't get all that much offshore, mostly during the morning time but quite always the wind will turn before noon. The best months are surely April, may, August and September that's when the winds are lighter and offshore is more cumin. If you got a car you can park it right in front of the brake. You can see it from the line up.

Atmosphere

The place is great. The water is warm (and mean warm) all year round. On the weekends the beach gets a lot of people. There are like these beach huts where you can get most of the locals culinary to eat and you can have anything to drink (for those how like some booze after the surf). The food is great and people also. The surf can get crowed on weekends but in the summer it's really bad at this spot. How ever there are many good spots around to choose from and most are actually reef brakes. There is no Place Like Salvador Bahia.

General

The beach got really famous for it's surf in the 80s for holding some big national contests. The wave works both ways and can get pretty good. I would say it's high light is it's barrows on the lowing tides. It has a shallow sand bar that can make the wave pitch nicely. The weakness is the wind. There are normally constant onshore what make the surf normally not as good as it gets. I've seen it brake big. It can work at up to 8' on the right swell. But the biggest it gets, the further you paddle.

Dangers at Stella Maris - I have not surfed in years but would like to surf Stella Maris beach as I stay at hotel. Are the rocks underneath the surf dangerous? Do you know a surf shop close by that I can rent a surfboard at?
