marcelo - mundaka,uluwatu...I believe you guys need to go there and see what a real wave is...not putting guaratiba down,because it is a classic wave,foward,never cutback and nice barrels.way better that this summer in hawaii,here sucks...can't wait to north swells arrive

By anonymous , 21-09-2005

Locals knowledge appreciated - Sorry guys but we must be talking about 6-9ft faces as comments on all areas surrounding this place are average, and a 6-9ft hawaiian wave is a good size wave. Where is the best area of breaks to surf in Brasil? would love some local feeback
