Dangers

- Localism

 Additional Information

- Probably the heaviest localism in Brazil, when this spot is on it's always classic but be very respectful with the locals, or you gonna be in big trouble.

- There are many surfers, even pros, who tried to surf Atalaia and got beaten by locals who were waiting on the sand with rocks and baseball bats. Go out at your own risk, police won't do anything for you.

It is under rated!!! - I had the chance to surf over there a couple times: first in 1983 and last in 2007. Both times I had the concrete feeling it is the most perfect left in Santa Catarina. Even better than Guarda do Embau, Joaquina e Vila (Imbituba). Got there very low profile and stayed out for almost two hours, surfing along good surfing level locals. Then, as usual, the kookiest local one came up and started yieling to me to go in.

As I was satisfied, I did it, with a smile in the face.

- Had a good time with a ladyboy crack-whore in Itajai.....only 40 Reals all night!!
Didnt even bother to check out the waves, but in all my time in Brasil never had a problem with locals ANYWHERE!!!

Easy way to surf Atalaia - Go there start to smork MACONHA and offer it to them. You'll become CAMORADA with no time than you take your surfboard out of your car.
