funny, people think Cumbuco is just the lagoon and fully crowded...
it is a 20 km long beach!!!
The lagoon is full in November, but the ocean NEVER is !
Along the 20km from Tabuba until the lagoon you will find sweet 1-2.5m waves.
Best waves in Tabuba and in front of Vila Gale (about 500-700m upwind of Cauipe lagoon).
Also during swell in front of Duro Beach (stay out of the way of the guy with the 18 sqm kite!
In front of the main village the water is rather choppy, with small rolling waves, not clean.
During swell things look different (Nov-Mar). Low tides are soother than hightides, so is the shore break.
