When Prainha is very messed up, PG becomes a natural alternative. It's a beach break, with lefts and rights, very fun wave. Best swell direction is SE and the best wind is NW either W. As it it a very, very, very long beach (Grande, in portuguese, means "big"), you can choose your point with no need to worry about the crowd.
The far you head to the south of this beach, the most you get in contact with Mother Nature. Very nice place for fishing.
Be in a good physical condition. Waves break very far from the sand. A lot of manuevering outside. Very fun wave, if you get it with the right wind direction.
