General

I think this is a great spot, it is not the best, but it is fun, specially if you are a beginner.. the coolest thing is that you are close to many other beaches that you can find yourself same pretty good waves (Pipa, Artistas, Tabatinga)

Ponta Negra - RJ - Do not confuse Ponta Negra located in Maricá, Rio de Janeiro State with Ponta Negra in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte State. Ponta Negra in Natal is a beach with low wave. Ponta Negra in Maricá is a beach with high waves.
The distance between both beaches is about 3000 Km (2000 miles).
