general information

Quality right hander that breaks over a rock-reef just north of the breakwall and outside the town of Paul Do Mar. Works best in a big Northwesterly swell and offshore nor'east trades. Handles lots of size and can get truly epic. Fast and powerful you'll definitely want to know what you are doing to be out here, or risk annihilation. As with the rest of the breaks along this stretch of coast, the entry off the rocks provides a challenge itself.
