About Vila Nova

Banana shaped bombora reef that picks up and magnifies W-N swells into super heavy rights and the odd left. Fast, thick barrels that wedge up and bend around this gnarly offshore reef. Handles huge and is always bigger than it looks. Low tide is suicide and only experts with big everything should join the very few who have ridden this wave.

Needs medium to big swells and light S winds so it's only a medium consistency spot. Solo surfing mostly, because it is a boat access spot. Talisca is another dangerous righthander 200m paddle from the port that looks good but the currents are treacherous.
