About Morro Negro

Known as Pipeline's Atlantic sister. Lefts and rights reel down a short and shallow reef with intense power and ferocity. W swell makes the lefts more makeable than the rights, which resemble Backdoor by closing out on the sharp lava reef. When it’s on, it’s packed with the best of the islands stand-up and bodyboarders and a Coliseum atmosphere pervades.

One of the most photographed spots in the Canaries, but also one of the most localised. Does have its quieter moments on less epic days however the surfing level required to ride here must be very high.
