The best wave is a left but you can also find some good rights.
It's kind of a secret spot,. not everybody knows it. It's not always working and the crowd is very low. Always keep a low profile anyway and respect anyone you see in the water.
I love this wave, it's fast and really long. It has caracteristics of a point break. it doesnt hold big swells but when Praia do Rosa is breaking at around 2m (6 feet) here you will fin perfect 4 feet walls.
DON'T LEAVE TRASH ON THE BEACH !!!

local - it is not that secret anymore every one knows about it and on the bigger days at rosa you can find it quite crowded there and even on smaller days, but just like always you can get lucky and go on the right time and catch perfect waves with no one i do it all the time. most of the days when it is good only go for the left hander you are way better off longer ride and walls up allot more, but when it really gets epic the best one is the right that breaks kinda near the rock and you can cross the whole beach on this wave "trust me i have done it" but your chances for that is 1 in a million it almost never happens.

local knowledge - First of all, nowadays vermelha does have crowds on regular basis.Second, the best conditions for vermelha is a southeast swell with south wind (offshore).
