Floripa in October-November

« on: September 02 2006 04:09:00 »

I am thinking on travelling solo to Florianopolis (praia mole, joaquina, etc.) on October-November, but I fear that there might not be too many waves, or that these will be small considering the time of the year (beginning of the Brasilian summer).
Has anyone been there at this time of the year?
Many thanks for your help.
Keep surfing,


Elliot Gorfain

Hey Marco...I went down around March-middle of Floripa summer-last year (stayed with Nexus Surf) and still scored chest to overhead waves pretty much the whole time. As for Oct/Nov, I haven't been but the WCT holds the only South American leg of the tour down there at the end of Oct., so it must be pretty reliable. There's a Floripa Surf report on Swell Magnet (surf report out of L.A)...they have some picks that are updated throughout the week of Floripa.

I am in Floripa now.  Ingleses was good on 10-13 - about 2-3 ft.  Yesterday Joaquina was ripping.  About 4-5 feet and solid.  You still need a spring suit right now.  In fact, July or October is the best month for surf in Floripa.  good luck.
