Porto de Galinhas in Pernambuco is an exposed reef break that has consistent surf. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. Both left and right reef breaks. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of sharks and rocks.
