Lugar De Baixo was one of the best surf spot of Madeira but the construction of a seawall damage the quality of the wave .
Before you could ride clean long barrels 4 out 5 waves, but now you can get a strong backwash the compromise the wave ,however still can find good waves until one hour before or after high tide , the take off is near the outside rock , very steep drop and fast hollow waves sections.
Avoid low tide , can be very crowded.
