Surf conditions in Santa Catarina State - Florianopolis :
Air Temp (°C)
April to October is the best time to go. Its a year round destination though and there is always warm water & great nightlife!
As we pointed out before, the fact that Floripa is an island, it picks up swell coming from all directions. But usually, the place handles best swells from the eastern and southeastern quadrant.
Bigger southerly swells are common in winter, and mellow easterly swells most common in summer. It is said that Floripa has over 90 beaches in total, but the most famous one has to be Joaquina. On the good swells, perfect A-frames break all along the beach, delivering smooth walls and perfect barrels. Because of its fame, the place tends to get overcrowded on weekends.
For the beginners, the best option has to be Praia Mole, producing mellow waves for your first paddle-outs, and with plenty of entertainment on the sand as well.
Even though these first two are probably the best know waves of the city, the gem of this place has to be Campeche. A perfect right-hand point break, breaking through three sections and often compared to the legendary Jeffrey´s Bay in South Africa, but because of its quality, locals can get pretty territorial.
