Pontissima is a righthander located in between the famous surf spots Ribeira d’Ilhas and Cave. You can access the wave from both sides, but the easiest access is paddling from Ribeira d’Ilhas. Once you have passed Pontinha, the next peak is Pontissima. This heavy wave breaks over reef and works best around mid tide.
Since it’s a long paddle from Ribeira, it’s less crowded but also more local. Only go there if you know what you are doing and respect the locals!
