Medina Wins Brazil’s First World Title, Wilson Takes Pipe Masters and Triple Crown
A bit further along the Bayovar headland lays Punta Tur another great lefthander. It breaks further away from the shore than Nonura, resulting in really long waves, although it peels so fast that the ride is usually split into different sections. When everything aligns like 10ft of SW swell, ESE winds and low incoming tide, T-Land can resemble its Indonesian namesake. Punta Tur also suffers from really strong currents, making jetskis a highly desirable tool.
This is desert camping at its most basic so be prepared for sand finding its way into everything. Few surfers bother to make the long 4x4 trek out here so take extra water, food, fuel and tyres for the inevitable punctures. It is inconsistent, gets blown out and is only suited to fast, confident surfers. Pristine environment - leave it that way.
