don´t turn right...... - if you go right the wave gets so hollow and the water so shallow that surely you will hit the rocks full of shellfish sharp as blades........ already saw bad injuries when someone tried to surf the right face of the wave on an 8 feet wave... imagine doing that on 20+......... the wave here is constant during the year on small sizes up to 8 feet. huge swells only during fall, winter and early spring when southern storms swells hit the island. perfect conditions you will find only a few times a year. even during summer it is possible to see perfect waves there but it is against the law even dropping on the island. this is a refuge for the sea wolves when on procreation. don`t ever paddle alone since the tides in the south atlantic are extremely powerful. the ones who call itself "locals" are just kids on its puberty. surfers here are in general friendly if you respect them of course.

- Answering to the question posted by UKTW in 28-07-2003 (a bit late) - Yes, the guy did made it! His name is Alemao de Maresias and in fact that 35ft monster is the biggest wave ever surfed in Brazil. Too bad it is against the law to surf there now. There were many giant swells ever since that pic was taken and if even in Rio de Janeiro they had very big waves imagine the size of them in Ilha dos Lobos.

Damn! - Looks like a Teahupoo/Pipeline/Shipsterns mix! Does people still surf there? I saw some videos and looks like the flows are very dangerous to go paddling and even with jet skis! The wave doesn't look too long to the left, why nobody tries to the right? Is because of the rocks?
