Pontal in Bahia - Sul is an exposed beach break that has dependable surf. The surf tends to be optimum in the spring. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
