Ponta Delgada in Madeira is an exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the best swell direction is from the north northwest. A left hand reef. Best around mid tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rocks.
