a lie - this wave is a lie. i've been surfing paracuru many times and never saw this wave breaking. they put this picture (the wave near the pear) in papers to sell turist packs but this just doesn't exist. the botom changed and the wave is gone. Although Paracuru is a good surf spot, with long waves. usualy they are small, like chest high. but they are fun. the best surf spot are the "fish curral", "ronco do mar" and "pedra do meio". this 3 spots are rocky botom and point break. there is only one place for the drop, and it realy gets crowd.

- You are coming in the right time...i gess in december we ll have good conditions for surfing if the swells came in...people talk about kite and wind because most of the year we have great conditions...

- There's a point break protected by wind in right side of the beach. Early and sunset are the best surf. Bring your board and your kite as well, because northeast of Brasil have lots of winds.
