Santa Clara Spot Guide

About Santa Clara

Heavy righthand reef off the southern tip of Ponta Delgada. A very big S, SW or W swell is needed to awaken this spot so consistency is low. Critical take-offs and high speed barrel sections are part of the challenge for experts only.

Solo surfing because nobody is too interested and all the other south coast spots will be firing. Pollution from the city sewage and stormwater outfall pipes is another deterrent. Located at the eastern end of the aeroporto.
