Nayham from Brazil
“Excelente esquerdas pesadas e por vezes tubulares com a ondulação certa.
Pico raso, não permitindo se dar ao luxo de errar o drop, principalmente com a maré baixa e em dias grandes.

Excellent heavy and sometimes tubular lefts with the right swell.
Don't miss the drop, especially at low tide and on big days.”
