Pontinha

Everything you need to now about this surf spot

Pontinha is the northern outside section of Ribeira d’Ilhas. A couple of times a year Pontinha is connected with Ribeira, but most of the time this is a wave on it’s own. Like Ribeira, Pontinha is a nice righthander, but it’s more difficult and faster. The take-off is next to a rocky ledge sticking out into the ocean. This wave works best with more water, so mid to high tide is normally the best. Take care of the urchins and respect the locals!
