It's a beach break that actually works like a point break; cause there is an island right in front of the point (1 mile distance from the beach) that shapes the sand bottom perfectly and it makes perfect rights. The waves break far away from the shore (to be a beach break 250m) so you have 100m of flat water to perform progressive freestyle tricks and then perfect waves to rip! It holds every swell size from 2-10 feet (0.5-3m). Near the beach you also have a lagoon that works with every wind direction and it's perfectly flat for freestyle. Waves year around especially in May the waves can get as high as 15 feet (4.5m). People tow-in in this surf area. Kite surfing on the Lagoon of Ibiraquera is very safe, 0.5-1.7 meters deep, and is pretty flat without obstacles

The beautiful beach is perfectly safe since it is a long sandy beach without any dangerous rocks downwind from the point. So you can land and launch your kite safely.

The wind blows all the year. You can kite almost 4 days in a week. From 7-20 knots normally during a day but during the spring season it can have 22-25 knots. The best season it’s from September to March. The usual direction its from the NE but also you can sail with S, SW, SE and N.

Remember that the place is Kauli Seadi"s Home, so if you see him sailing just beside you don't be surprised !!!!!!

How to get there:
From the Airport of Florianopolis you drive 75 km south on the highway BR 101, there will be the crossroad for the city of Garopaba and some signs from the beach of Ibiraquera or Lagoon of Ibiraquera. If you come by bus, from the airport of Florianopolis you must take a taxi to the main bus station than take a bus to Garopaba.

Rules & Restrictions: Just keep tuned in what you’re doing just like at any other spot !!

It's great! Especially during summer (December to March). It's a surf town, here everybody lives and breath surf! Lots of surf bars and discos, great music, from electronic, reggae, hip-hop, to Brazilian music. Hot babes, small bikinis and beautiful blond ladies. And spectacular places to eat. The jet set of brazil spend their vacations here, so it’s very secure. You should go to Jamaica Bar! The party here starts really late, and ends even more lately, with all the people dancing on the beach.
