Pororoca is a phenomenon that happens with a combination of rivers tides variation and the moon position.
Usually at equinox, high tide is coming from the sea invading the rivers and producing strong waves. Every full and new moon from January to may and august to November. In the first semester the waves are glass and perfect. In the second semester the river stayed swung, because of the strong winds and is good to do kitesurf.
Surfing into the jungle, good vibes.
You can test your surf... can do every maneuvers and enjoy all the time in the Amazon forest.But be careful, there are alligators and water snakes at the area that can hurt you.
