 Santa Catarina South

Brazil

Santa Catarina is one of the most human and industrial developed states in Brazil. Besides it is considered the best and the most beautiful state to make tourism. People are kind and beautiful, you walk safe through the streets, you have good hotls structure, good roads and airports, and thousands of beaches to know. If you come to Santa Catarina in the winter, you can surf 12ft-15ft at Vila becha in Imbituba city one day, and the other day climb the hills, heading Lages or São JOaquim citis to see the snow. If you are in the summer, you can surf Imbitube, Garopaba or Florianópolis in the day, and take a short trip to Balneário Camboriú at night to have real fun at the clubs and stores and malls. Santa catarina is absolutely cosmopolitan. A great state for sure. And it is the best surf area in Brazil. It picks bigger swells coming from the South Atlantic and Antartica, even from African Atlantic Ocean side. The best period is from Late March to early November, but the swells are very consistent year around. Always take your wetsuit with you.

- Hi,

I´m Ana from Germany. I and my boyfriend want to go to Santa Catarina or Forianopolis in January. Does anybody now how much it costs to rent a board for a day, a week or more? Because the transport of our boards by plane would be more or less expensive.
How big are the waves in January. We don´t need huge waves because we are beginners. 6 ft is enough.
Obrigada
Greetings from Germany
Ana Maria

Errors - Praia da Saudade, Prainha is the same beach of Prainha São Chico and it belongs to Santa Catarina North, Atalaia and Navegantes too.

Ilha dos Lobos - I am a Rio Grande do Sul local and I am here to correct a huge mistake about Ilha dos Lobos. This great surf spot does not belong to Santa Catarina but to Torres, Rio Grande do Sul, a beach located at north of the brazilian southest state. Look for Torres at the world atlas, this is the place Ilha dos Lobos belongs.
