Go out and play!! - Long lefts on a good East/NorthEast swell. Watch out for the strong rip. Jumping from the rocks is a good option.Locals?? Oh , they're only a bunch of guys who live in a town where there's no beach (Criciúma)....They're just like a little dog , they bark a lot but are harmless...Enjoy your surf!!

Cigana - To the right of cardozo you can go across the rocks and even jump from them to avoid paddling. I had a great time surfing cigana and recommend it for sure. Everywhere you go there will be a local looking agrily at you, it`s not different there. Just give them priority and the take the second or third from the set. There are plenty of waves!!!!
