About Vila Franca

Reef peak in the shadow of Ilheu da Vila, but still picks up swell from many directions. Punchy and sucky, with good length of ride, especially at sub-mid tides. High tide is fuller on the face and much more ripable.

Best on due S swells so only medium consistency. Dangerously shallow at low tide. Some pollution from the town.
