Lately I have been bombarded with emails about Floripa as many of you seem interested in heading there in the next couple of months. While I am putting together a guide with bars, restaurants, and hotels to make your life easier, I decided to suggest surfing lessons as an alternative to all the late-night parties.
I have been thinking about learning to surf for a while now, and recently found out Floripa has a great program for that at Brazil Surf Camp. I figured I would post about it as there are probably a few of you who would like to embark on a surf camp in the south of Brazil as well.
I can't say much about my personal experience with the program as I have not yet been able to take a week off and devote it to surfing, but the packages listed on the website look like a good deal to me. And if a week is too long for you, there are also weekend packages with accommodations at Mole Beach Park Hotel, meals, and four hours of daily surf lessons, which could be a good way to get your body in shape for Carnival.
