About Ponta do Tristão

Another rarely surfed spot with difficult access. First ridden by Angus Opie, Magnus Murray and Will Henry. Requires a long paddle from the northern end of Porto Moniz. Usually too fast with unmakeable sections, but can be good with just the right swell direction.

Walk north from Porto Moniz and paddle out in the channel, then all the way west to the end of the point.
