Florianopolis Surfing Overview
Florianopolis’ place among the world’s best surfing spots is illustrated by the fact that it plays host to the only WCT pro surf tour event in all of South America. The island has a culture that is deeply intertwined with surfing, something that makes a surf holiday in Brazil an even more incredible experience for those that live and Brazilian Surfer From Below breathe surfing. A genuine surfer’s paradise thanks to its year-round consistent swell and diversity of breaks, Florianopolis has waves that cater to all surf abilities, from first time surfers to the most experienced and hardcore big wave riders. Beginners typically enjoy learning amid the calm waters and gentle swells at beaches such as Barra da Lagoa and Galheta while more experienced surfers have a seemingly unlimited variety of spots from which to choose from.
Florianopolis sees its most consistent surf during the months of April through October when the southern hemisphere’s Atlantic seas send major swells pounding into the South American coastline. Water temperatures range from the low 70’s into the mid 60’s, hardly the frigid temps surfers in the US are accustomed to. As a side benefit, the cooler water temps thin out the temperature-sensitive (read: spoiled) local lineups considerably, often resulting in epic and uncrowded surf. Though the beaches themselves are generally less crowded during this time of year (save for weekends and holidays), the nightlife is as consistent as the surf and firing just about every night of the week. These dates make for an ideal Brazilian surfing holiday for those wanting to maximize their overall surfing experience while taking advantage of Nexus' low season pricing (from May to end of October).
Brazil Surf Seasons: November-March
This time of year is perfect for those looking for a great balance between great surf, incredible nightlife (shifted up a few notches from April-October, and then a few more notches during the Brazilian vacation season of New Year’s through Carnaval), fantastic weather and warm water temperatures. Though the surf is slightly less intense, you are still likely to score solid waves (overheads not uncommon) thanks to the consistent swell and large diversity of surf spots on and around the island, at least a few of which are likely to be “on” at just about any given moment. The beach and nightlife scene is unparalleled during these months, particularly during the Brazilian vacation season (Christmas through Carnaval), providing a unique blend of quality surf during the day and outrageous nightlife in the evenings. These dates make for an ideal Florianopolis surfing holiday for those wanting to maximize their overall vacation experience.
