Another excellent, intense wave off the NW tip of the faja. Sucks in all swell from 180º to a peak that runs right for a few hundred meters and a much shorter left. Works from tiny to towering, when it's very fast, very hollow and very shallow. It's always bigger than it looks and if it's flat, everywhere on the N coast is. Can link up to Igreja with NW swell and Direta do Passe with NE making for some very long rides.

Surprisingly, there is usually no current, but beware of rocks, just below the surface.
