Another view - Look, The way I know it to happen there: The Americans can make the session less positive in the water sure but give and take the waves and be easy it's oke really. The guy who wrote about 'it's not so dangerous' I don't know If you are a supper surfer or a potential murderer (sorry for the wording man). The place is definitely tricky not to say it could definitely damage you. I guess it's like any place where waves can be good but not often are the real deal (beautiful). Peace

howzit? who's dave? - Quatro Ribeiras isn't that dangerous, there's a fun left, but don't expect to get the waves of your life in terceira, however, if you get Santa Catarina pumping you'll get your melon shacked for sure! I surfed both these breaks with no one out last spring. It's a cool, mellow, country-like place. Friendly locals too. Show respect, they're big and can get nasty. One downside, lots of american wankers on this island, there's an american airforce base or whatever those seppos call it...Cheers! By the way, don't write scare posts, the truth will keep the intruders away...kooks don't go to places like this, chill mate!
