Atmosphere

When it's happening there are many beach-brakes. The beach is pretty big but it geats very crowded easily. Be cool with the locals and don't drop in in anyone's wave otherwise you'll be taken out of the water and will get your ass jiu-jitsued. During the summer it's the best spot to hang out.

General

Well, Praia brava is amazing in the weekends, by day you can surf quality waves, and by night you can go in for a hell of a night in the nighthouses.

hi there - Praia Brava is at Itajai, not in Floripa. It's a standard wave; and the worst, rarely break, always flat...

By brazilian , 26-08-2006

not the same spot - The praia brava you guys are looking for is located on the north of florianopolis island which is a strong and fast wave on the good days. the praia brava the site has mentioned is the praia brava of itajai, a port city 50 miles away from the islan. good barrels same times too .catch ya
