pipa... better bf - i spent a lot of time in Pipa and it need a good swell to see a decent wave.
The waves are most of the time affectet by onshore wind.
If you're around there, go to bf. You'll find a better quality wave.

- There are two surf seasons at Pipa. December to March which picks up N to NE swells and June to September which picks up S to SE swells. You can surf diferent waves at these seasons. Both seasons are very nice. Falou!!!
