Week-end crowdFew surfers
Difficult to get in the water, lots of rocks on the inside.
Best on low tide rising, but often surfable during high tide. Watch the rocks!!! Especially if you are surfing during high tide because you will be surfing over them.
Great atmosphere! Deserted during the week, but on the weekends you may expect a lot of expectators (mostly tourists) watching from the restaurant. Very beautifull, lots of coconut trees. Friendly locals!
If a great swell hits the coast after the rain at night there's an offshore east wind, don't know why but generally after the full moon, the swell promises to be powerfull with great waves. the take off is fast and there's time only to enjoy the curtains of water falling off.
This spot is named after the restaurant, which used to be called New Orleans since its owner was from New Orleans. The waves can get very good here. Catch it on the right day and you may have the best surf session of your surf trip.
The ideal spot cuz sunny all-year-round, clotheless only in shorts and it's fupping blessing just by being at the place and whatch the sun risin'...

no title - I've been surfing in this spot since not many people new about it. During the winter you can live your surfing dreams at this spot. I'm a local but currently going to college in the US, so every summer break(winter in Brazil!!!!!) New Orleans is a sure stop for me and my friends. Aloha!
