the rivermouth breaks once in a while but the middle and far right corner breaks all the time. if small surf, head over the beach next to it on the right called Ingenho. Always good surf there,local spot though so be careful
ALSO, when we get a good swell, the right hand corner gets a good triangle effect from the rocks and breaks really nice, long walk tho
good on most days, better in the far right corner

saves the day - once upon a time i was surfing in Barra do Una and i saw perfect waves with about 5 feet and 100 meters long, but this spot usually doens't break so good, because the wave close a lot, if you want to surf here, better between march - october when the winds cooperate.
