For Cumbuco is is big yes, but...

So you always should everything in perspective of other peple using this forum...it is international, where you always have bigger, better, etc!

But I hope the swell is like this when I come!
Please book it for me on Nov 2nd! Thx!

Kris, dont take me wrong I ve been allready 2 times in Cumbuco and it´s a GREAT place to Kite.

For me , its just not a wave spot. I found Paracuru or even Praia do Futuro a lot better places in the area for wave riding.

And, yes bored in front of my computer as I'm recovering for 6 mths now from a knee ligament surgery.

But no hurries 1 month from now I will be in Cape Verde surfing at Ponta Preta.
Have been finding for the last years waves there to be a litle better and biger than in Cumbuco. :thumb:
