Barrao Surf Guide

Barrao in Espirito Santo is a quite exposed beach and point break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the northeast. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south. Prevailing left breaking waves at the beach break. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of the strong rips here.
