This spot only breaks in huge south or southwest swells. Actually, if you go to Maresias beach and see that the waves are cracking with power, go to Paúba, it´s almost sure that the waves there are rolling.
This is a SICK spot. The waves here are very powerfull and gnarly. However the bottom is sandy it´s very shallow. The waves breaks close to the beach and take a set over you head on big days here can be danger. It´s easy to break boards in two pieces here. The place it´s awesome, surrounded by forest and the water it´s warm
Usually the best waves here are rights, but there´re some good hollow lefts too. If you are prepared to take the drop, you can ride HUUUUUUUGE barrels here and get spit out of it.

Insane - This is Probably one of the most powerfull and dangerous beachbreaks in the entire world, it can get preety big, and the wave breaks like 10 meters from the beach. One of the most famous brazilian big rider got tetraplegic here, that's right the guy was a legend and even though payed the price! If u sthill wanna charge it... be very carefull
