With a good 6 to 8ft NE swell at low tide (only breaks at low tide}, drop late, gain the wall (eventually there is a tubing first section), carve and make strong maneuvers, then enter in the inside section gain velocity and kick off as fast as you can before you hit the rock wall that stands in front of you.

Atmosphere

Very good break which I repute as one of the best reef breaks in Brazil, if not the best one. The only problem is that it is not very consistent because it needs a combination of the right swell with the rigth tide. Take care with the rocks very sharp and the urchins, booties can be a must. Pay attention to the rising tide that can make a hell for you to get out of the water.

I only can't rate it as a classic because the lack of consistency.
