The best wave in Europe. It works with half-tide and empty, with north and northeast wind. If the swell comes from the south it is a pipe machine. It requires determination to complete the strong drops with almost no water underneath. It is a wave very fast and for advanced level.
Several peaks on this beach, a powerful beach break and a powerful left reef break well known worldwide for the epic tow-in sections. Requires experience and determination. East is offshore and the best swell direction is from the west. Works best with half tide.
Praia da Areia Branca
Level: All Levels
It is a beach break of great extension where there are at least four peaks to surf. The best wind is the east and the tide is almost full. The best swell comes from the west but works with all swell directions. There are waves for all levels of surf.

This amazing uncrowded coastline between Santa Cruz to Praia da Areia Branca offers many beach breaks and reefs. With beach breaks in each town suitable for learning and many off the beaten track waves along the coastline it is a great place to explore without the concern for large crowds.
Santa Cruz beach break gets good swell and waves are great on small to medium west swells. It can get crowded in the summer months but you only have to walk five minutes to find a peak that is quieter.
Praia da Areia Branca gets consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds and best around low tide when the tide is falling. Even when there are waves, it's not likely to be crowded. Take care of urchins and rocks.
Don't forget to explore the towns of Peniche and Ericeira
