Armacao Surf Guide

Armacao in Florianópolis is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the southwest with some shelter here from north winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of rips, rocks.
