 Additional Information

Park your car in the parking lot, they have security. No rip off problem (but don´t show your CD player to everybody).
Powerful beach break. Very good waves, good for tubes and lots of maneuvers. Most consistent spot on the island of Santa Catarina. As most beach breaks, no easy way in when it´s big.

Better places to paddle to the line-up are between a large rock in the water and the coast cliff, and around the middle of the beach.

Atmosphere

This is the most well-know spot on the island, but surprisingly, sometimes you can get great (and I really mean GREAT waves) with the beach empty, even on weekends (at winter only).
The waves are great, the beach is nice, and there are plenty of other stuff to do (sandboard, girl chasing). It´s always worth a try. Beware of locals.

Natal = Xmas - Hello there. Can anyone tell me about at this spot at xmas time? Is summer a good time to surf here at all? Hope someone can help me!

Summer Surf - Is there any surf here in January? My friends are planning a trip to Florianopolis this January. I want to go, but I'm afraid this might be the worst time of year to visit for surf. Any information would be very helpful.

joaca rules - I went there today... it was nice, about 8ft, heavy... there were about 20 surfers... didn't have any problem with any of them... you're gonna have trouble with the locals only if you're looking for trouble... if you wanna avoid crowd, just go a little bit further south, the quality of the wave is the same...Love and peace!
