It is one of the best surf spots of Santa Catarina state (both North and South Shore). It is a reef-rocky located in a city called Piçarras. It is near the summer night club Bali Hai. Once you hear the swell direction is East at 3-4ft (or higher) or Southeast at 5-6ft (or higher), just check if the wind is calm and get there as soon as possible. This is one of the 5 stars waves of Santa Catarina. Totally Indonesia! Perfect right handers, very long waves, powerfull, a lot of manouvering, some tubes in the take off section. The only problem is when it is pumping, it seems like all Santa Catarina's north shore surfers are there.

 Additional Information

Take a 30 mininutes paddle out from the beach up to the reef. Circle it through out the north side and stay in the line, waiting for your turn to take off. Make your you are smacking the lip surfing level, at least... This is no child's wave. Take a good leash and always stay tuned to help anybody or to call for help.

Atmosphere

People always say good this about Joaquina, about Guarda do Embaú, about Imbituba. But if you want to get a real Indonesia surfing style in Santa Catarina, except for the cold water, you should surf Laje dos Jacques.
