Carapebus Surf Guide

Carapebus in Espirito Santo is an exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around mid tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
