Atmosphere

The wave is very easy, ideal for beginners. If a Swell come in than it became a funny and very long wave. Ideal to learn...
The locals surf here only if it's big, 200 m after there is the main spot of baia formosa. Pontal and they all go there.
You surf most of the time alone or with few local kids.
