Surfing in Florianopolis??

Anyone been surfing in Florianopolis lately?

I've heard the island is amazing but really spread out, hard to find good breaks and nightlife too. Only have 1 week of vacation, don't want to waste much time. Wondering where best place to stay is.

Found a cool/informative site online called Nexus Surf, looks like based in Praia Mole from what I can tell, which seems like a good place to stay.

Any thoughts?





RE: Surfing in Florianopolis??

I saw the nexus website and it seems to be a very good option for you.
There are not so many english speakers in brasil and as you told, Floripa is a big island, sometimes easy to get lost and not find any wave after 50 - 80 km with a rental car (a little expensive in Brasil).
If you would have more time to spend here I would suggest you to try other cheaper options, but in your case (1 week), I believe a full service package would be better.
All the best,
