About Ribeira da Janela

A great left pointbreak towered over by a 300ft seamount just behind the wave. The take-off is also breathtakingly steep and the barrel sections come thick and fast. Protected from storm SW-W winds that blow out the south shore so it's sometimes crowded.

Big boulders litter the line-up and the roadside parking below the cliffs.
