Nice spot - Pico de Matinhos is a very nice surf spot however it only works a few times during the year, especially during winter. It’s too risk to travel all the way to Matinhos to check if it’s working.
I have surfed there a few times and never had problems, in my opinion the problem are not the REAL locals, which are good surfers and some are very humble. The real problem is those guys who “think” are locals and don't have good surfing skills and try to intimidate everyone who surfs better than them. They are normally friends of locals and are always in the search for trouble.
If you are looking for good surf spots go south and head to Santa Catarina, better surf and better girls (MY OPINION).

Locals and crowd - Meet a local guy and go surf there.

Please stay in peace and good waves.

Best wave in this State, but only in te winter....

See ya

Rebuilt - Pico de Matinhos is got a very long lengh on good days, I´d say it´s one of the 05 longest waves in the country, it can get over 300 mts. Also, this spot´s got rocks on its botton and it can get dangerous on big days.
