Description of Ponta de Barra Falsa, Mozambique

It is a point break that receives open ocean swell. Totally uncrowded. Only one local (Stuart) who works at the dive camp and skippers the scuba charters. He does not like to surf there. "Too many Tiger sharks", he says. Lots of other secret spots in close vacinity, though. The point can give a very long ride on good days and the local fishermen in their wooden boats will be the only locals in the water. Clear and warm water and a short, easy paddle.
