Maracaipe in Pernambuco is an exposed beach break that is often working. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the west northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around high tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of sharks and rocks.
