THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE THE ROAR OF THE SURF AT MURDERERS' ISLAND The whaleboat awaiting the lull which follows each series of several pounding rollers on the beach at Fernando Noronha. The southeast trade winds come over the island and whip the tops off the breakers rolling against them. Photographs by Geo. Finlay Simmons A RIDE ON A BRAZILIAN "JANGADA" A platform raised above a raft keeps passengers and cargo dry, as they slide through the breaking surf and onto the beach of Brazil's Island of Murderers, where there are no wharves, quays, or piers.
