For a long time, São Julião was a secret spot. It all changed in 1996 when the O’Neill Buondi Pro, a ASP/WSL 5 star event, moved over from Ribeira D’Ilhas, the original location for the event. The waves hardly broke in Ribeira and São Julião was looking great so a new spot was introduced to the world. From then on it was on the map and it’s now recognized as one of the best beach breaks around Ericeira.
