Pipa is about 85 kms. from Natal and there are lots of hotels (pousadas) to stay, that are cheap.
This spot is for all surfers including beginners. The size of the board is goes from a 5`9 up to a 6`4. Some longboards and funboards are seen sometimes. Near Praia do Amor there`s another beach that in a very good day you can see dolphins while surfing.
This spot is one of the best in Rio Grande do Norte. Championships had been realized in this beach.

pipa... better bf - i spent a lot of time in Pipa and it need a good swell to see a decent wave.
The waves are most of the time affectet by onshore wind.
If you're around there, go to bf. You'll find a better quality wave.

- There are two surf seasons at Pipa. December to March which picks up N to NE swells and June to September which picks up S to SE swells. You can surf diferent waves at these seasons. Both seasons are very nice. Falou!!!
