It is a powerfull lefthander. It is better with east and northeast swells and west wind. With these directions, the lefthanders come from in front of the rocks, openning all the way towards the middle of the beach. It becomes a long wave for a lot os snaps, off the tops, roundhouses cutbacks, floaters. With south quadrant swells, righhanders appears in the midlle of the beach, but ain't as good as the lefts.
One of the best waves of Florianópolis, speacially the the conditions are how it should be: east swell with west wind.
It is a good spot for running away from the crowd of east shore of Florianópolis (Joaquina, Mole and Moçambique spots). But don't expect to surf alone. You will not. Great nature around. Amazing sights.
