Racing the Emerald Curtain
The Left of the Church is the outer peak of the faja, picking up all available W-N swell. Fun summer spot for long walls, cutback shoulders and the odd cover-up in offshores. Once in a while it links up with Lago do Linho for the ultimate leg-burner. Handles onshore winds and even has the occasional right into the rocks.
Super consitent and mellow enough for beginners when small. Heavy currents and shifting line-up at size. All the breaks at Santo Christo are at least 40mins walk from the car park in Cubres. There's a quad bike taxi service that takes 10mins.
follow the only track around the base of the cliffs to the village.
