Esquerda Moita

3/5

Everything you need to know about this surf spot

In front of the parking just north of town, on the north side of Algodio beach and close to the chapel of São Sebastião, you will find an a-frame with two quality waves. The right is called Moita, the left Esquerda Moita. Esquerda Moita is a fast lefthand barrel with shallow take off. It’s only accessible for good surfers willing to pay the price when it goes wrong.

Since it’s a wave with heavy localism and bodyboarders, you might be better off watching the surf action from the shore. Without respect and surf etiquette you don’t have a chance!
