Faja dos Cubres Spot Guide

About Faja dos Cubres

Worldclass left pointbreak, wrapping down the rocks of the Faja dos Cubres. Wide swell window but when a NW swell hits just right and the 3 sections connect, this is probably the longest wave in Portugal. Heavy and super powerful with freight train sections and wide open barrels. Breaks closer to the rocks than the other faja's with boils and dry rocks if it is smaller. Prefers low tide incoming and lighter SW winds as it is very exposed out the back. Wont handle the massive stuff but triple overhead will test even the experts on longer boards.

Timing the sets makes entry safe but exiting the water can be an ordeal with sweeping currents and big whitewash through the rocks. Board and body damage is common.
