- I've surfing this spot for about ten years. I guess Formiga, like the beginners surfing there, don't know the "Mocó". The prainha works well with a northern swell producing good tubular waves up to 1,0 - 1,5 meters. Anyway, the Cardoso beach is a much more frequent spot, with a better quality wave, specially during winter (also when there is no crowd, including weekends).

slow and fat waves - smal waves and crowdead whit beginers
