Week-end crowdUltra crowded
- it work with south winds! if the wind direction is from the north try surfing "rosa norte"
nice beach, great atmosphere......... during summer nice party and chicks, but very crowded to surf, the locals are not very friendly dduring summer
- hollow waves on the middle of the beach
a must go....... if its to crowded try ibiraquera that has better waves and less crowd
- its better to sleep in other place, cause here there is a lot of crowd and many thiefs, but its a very nice place
- RESPECT THE LOCALS

- ok that is just dumb before they said rosa norte is very consistant and breaks all the time (which is true) mostly from chest to a foot overhead but rosa sul is way less consistant and when is is muchsy rosa norte is more of a wall... but when rosa sul gets good it barrels allot more but that is not alwayz, fix the mistake rosa norte is much more consistant... I have a house at rosa sul I dont need to get out of bed to see the waves there TRUST ME

rosa surfer - o yeah also the thing he said that was wrong was about it being no crowds in winter is not true, you can get it with few sometimes no people but on the average there is always people in the water and dont think that is is easy getting any wave you want on there beach breaks beacause they know what they are doin and when it get bigger the crowd always thins so get some balls and go out there!!!
