Regis Savoia from BRAZIL writes:

Boa onda bem manobravel praia estença da um pouco de insegurança por ser muito estansa mais boas ondas depois dos coqueiro mais sem intalaçao de barracas para uma agua ou lanche se for surf no pontal procure alguem que conhece o pico nao e legal ir sozinho abraço boas ondas a todos.

[Editor's notes - if you surf the point, search for someone who knows the break as it is not legal to surf alone]
