Week-end crowdUltra crowded
- Big swells are held on the point break with rocky bottom, on the Southern border. On Northern border, you will find good crowdless beach breaks.
- The inside on southern border holds a fast and tubular wave on smaller swells, which is called Mike Tyson. Can you figure out why? lol
- Respect the people and the nature, then they all will respect you.
- Take a look at this video. It is a "normal day" quality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MFRRwGHVLU
This place isn't for "summer surfers" and that doesn't mean localism, you will need a good physical condition and to be prepared for it. It's heavy and dangerous, be careful.
- When the Point-break is on, it's a world class wave. Held many surfing events.
- Intense crowd on the South so remember: RESPECT THE LOCALS or you gonna be in trouble.

Good place to surf.. - Silveira is one of the best places of the Brazil. Good waves, specially with a south swell.But if are not an experienced surfer, watch out or you will get in trouble here. Respect the locals, and you have a lot of fun here.
