 Additional Information

Try the middle of the beach when the swell is south, the crowd is lower in the middle and there are good waves; with east swell the watercourse may be strong. The corners get crowded and hold bigger waves cause they are better protected from the wind. The middle of the beach is usually empty and the outside ( on big days, very far from the beach ) is very peaceful. On big days it´s the longest paddle in São Paulo.

Atmosphere

The water is very clean, and sometimes turtles visit the line up. It´s an underrated wave around, most people think it´s bad all the time, but can get pretty good while other spots better known, more crowded and close to it are closing out. The right conditions are slightly different from the famous breaks around, try your luck.

- Riviera is a highly underrated beach break. It is true that, even by Brazilian standards, Riviera waves are mostly mushy, slow and somewhat powerless, but they are fun and, sometimes, very long. Besides, with the right swell conditions, Riviera can actually get as big as some of the more famous breaks around. The outside is very far from the beach on big days though and you need to be physically fit to cope with the very long paddle. The crowd is pratically non-existent on week days, but somewhat heavy on weekends. There is no overt localism or agro surfers though. As mentioned before, the water is very clean with sea turtles and jumping fish frequently seen in the line-up.

In my opinion, Riviera is actually one of the best longboarding spots on the São Paulo north coast, next to Baleia in Sao Sebastiao.
