Miami Surf Guide

Miami in Rio Grande Do Norte is an exposed beach and reef break that has consistent surf. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Waves at the beach are mainly lefts and there is a right hand reef break as well.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. The crowds in the water make a gath helmet a good idea.
