A great option on high tides, Pedra Branca is a barreling left-hand reefbreak. It’s a wave for experts, especially when the swell gets bigger than one meter. Although the risk of hard wipeouts is very present, the reward is often worth the risk since it’s one of the best spots in one of most wave rich stretches of coast in the world.
Works best on West, South West, South swells with Southeast, East, Northwest winds. Breaks from two to eight feet and can get crowded on the best days.
