As in many many popular surfing destinations also in Florianopolis there are number of surf camps you can choose from.
Surf camps for beginners and intermediates are multi-day lessons that focus on surfing fundamentals. They are designed to take new surfers and help them become proficient riders.
All-inclusive surf camps offer overnight accommodations, meals, lessons and surfboards. Most surf lessons begin by instructors pushing students into waves on longboards. The longboard is considered the ideal surfboard for learning, due to the fact it has more paddling speed and stability than shorter boards.
One week of a surf-camp (accommodation, equipment, lessons, breakfast) is priced around R$ 1800.
These are some of the companies that offer surf camps in Florianopolis:
- Nomads – besides surfing also offers Kitesurf, Windsurf and Surfaris.
- Evandro Santos Surf School – school owned by a former prosurfer Evandro Santos.
- Overnight Surf Camp
- Praia Mole Surf School
