Sul Surf Guide

Sul in South Bahia is an exposed reef break that only works once in a while. The surf tends to be optimum in the spring. Offshore winds blow from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the east southeast. Both left and right reef breaks. Sometimes crowded. Beware of rips and rocks.
