This is another spot at São Francisco do Sul Island. Drive to Praia do Forte and park your car in front of the Army area. Then, take a 15 minutes walk to the right side of the beach. If you walk to the left, you'll get at Sumidouro spot.

 Additional Information

This is another spot that need a HUUUUUUUUGE East swell to break. If PG and Prainha are like 10ft high, you'll get 3-4ft at Forte in the take off section beside the rocks and 2-3ft in the sandy section near the beach. The closer to the beach it gets, the fatter it gets. Outside section is good for short boards. Inside section, the longest one, is good for longboarders. That's why it is not so crowed as Sumidouro is when it pumps. Forte is an extremely rare wave but very long and funny right hander.

Atmosphere

If you know Sumidouro is working, before taking a 35 minutes walk up to there, take 5 minutes to check if Forte isn't juicy. Maybe you can catch good waves too, without having to share it whit 500 surfers or without having to take a long walk.

General

This is a very calm part of the island. Take food and water with you, beacause there are few bars there and the are closed in the winter.
