Sand Surfing Florianópolis
Let your feet bury themselves in the sand or slide in it. Arms raised, that the wind pushes you, that your left eye closes before the panoramic view of the sea and the fear of not seeing you fall. With the board under our arms we have no one to tell you how to lower the dune; It will be in your movements, get that balance, feel absorbed by the beach. A friend lent us the table, made some gestures with his legs and said it was a sensation for which he returned to “Joaca”. And you are not mistaken.
In Praia da Joaquina, also known as “Joaca”, one of the favorite of surfers in Florianópolis, an extreme sport is practiced that leaves you on top of a dune, sandboarding. There are some versions of its heyday, but on this Brazilian island there was the journey of some surfers who, not having good waves every day, were distracted by the excuse of getting up on a board in one way or another.
