This excellent spot is located in the city called Itapema. When you get there, drive all the way through its northern side and park your car in a place where other people can see. If you par it in quiet place, you might get it robbed. Than take a 20 minutes walk through the rocks, alson heading north. When you see the perfect left handers, like Indonesia, that's it! You'd better go with friends, beacause locals are dangerous.

 Additional Information

FIRST OFF ALL: BE A JUI-JITSU HEROE, IF YOU WANT TO FACE THE LOCAL GUYS. Localism at Ponta do Cabeço is as scary as at Atralaia. And also as Atalaia, it is a wonderfull wave. This is an Indonesia style wave, a left hander, very strong, pumping on a shallow bottom of rocks. It need a 5-6ft Esat swell with northwest wind to break in its perfect conditions. Once it happens, make surfe you are in shape, because you are going to have a 1 minute wave ride, full of manouvering sections. Remind yourself, there is not beach around. There are only rocks. So make sure your leash is in good conditions e and you can swim at least 500m to get out of the water in case of trouble.

Atmosphere

On Ponta do Cabeço, there is a gazebo on the hilltop, where you can admire the beautiful view and watch the locals in the case of being afraid to enter the water because of them. Ten or twelve years ago, it was ok to surf there, but nowadays you have to be vary carefull.

General

Cabeço is top surfing in Santa Catarina, as most of the other reef-rocky along the north and south shores of this brazilian state. In the video attached to this spot, you can see Cabeço on a small day, with short waves. On a big day, nobody wants to shoot some images but surf. It rocks!
