Through Rodrigo's leadership, BSA made sure that my trip to Floripa was memorable. With his local knowledge of prevailing surf & wind conditions, he made sure we were in the water at the right place and right time each day. Additionally, BSA's villas are conveniently locate to be able to access Floripa's best beaches and nightlife with ease. If you don't want to drive for surf, from your villa you can simply walk down to BSA's local beach at the end of the road which is an expansive beachbreak (no buildings for at least a mile in either direction!) with countless peaks to choose from and very few people. I will be back.
"BSA is hands down the best hardcore surf experience you could possibly get in Florianopolis for any surfer of any level. Whether you just wanna learn to stand up or get absolutly shacked out your mind at any one of the many many breaks Rodrigo will make it happen. Rodrigo is an absolute first class dude more then willing to make sure your stay is everything you want plus Floripa is really SAFE!!"
"My friend and I recently spent five days in Florianopolis with Rodrigo and friends. We had a blast despite bad weather and eventually learned to stand up on a surf board. The accommodations are two bedroom apartments just 2 minutes walking to Joaquina beach 10 minutes drive to Praia Mole in one direction and 05 minutes the other way to Praia Campeche. Location is good and inside the apartment is decent and clean with kitchen and tv with lots of surf videos. A rental car really is a must on the island and it is easy to drive. Rodrigo was a great host picking us up at the airport and helping us at grocery store and getting to the apartment. He is very relaxed. Definitely make him make you some smoothies for breakfast from fresh fruit and have a barbeque with awesome brazilian meat. At night he will show you around the island and tells you which club/bar is the best. The surf instructor Roger was great with us and gave us a lot of extra time. Overall this is the perfect vacation location and great price. Yes Rodrigo has paid me to write this, but not too much so I speak only the truth. just kidding guys... you will have fun with this guys!"
"Florianopolis is an amazing island that should be a definite stop for all travelers of Brazil, especially surfers. The four days I spent there were definitely a highlight of my three-week trip. Excellent beaches, excellent nightlife, and excellent people. And when I return to Florianopolis, I definitely plan to book with brazilsurfingadventure again. Rodrigo was an excellent host. He coordinated everything we needed for our stay including a rental car, surf lessons, and accomodations. It was a definite advantage to have his local perspective on the best restaurants, surf spots, and nightlife spots. I have no complains. If you go, definitely request to have a barbecue at his house and go to the Confraria."
"We very much enjoyed Rodrigo's surf camp, Shiva's visits and cuddling needs, and of course the daily brasilian coffee! With Rodrigo's help we got to surf, wakeboard, sandboard and to enjoy delicious dinners at local restaurants (we will never forget the chocolate pizza (and we ar Swiss) and the seafood and brasilian buffets). Rodrigo offer to take us to a international surfing contest in Praia da Vila was a great plus and a lot of fun. We learned that the Brasilialns can party even in the pouring rain and that glow worms even glow when it's wet. Unfortunately we only got to see the BBQ place in the making and know that it was built with a lot of dedication (of course only if the sun was shining). The sun is still shining for us when we think back to our Floripa vacation! Thank you for your hospitality and let us know when you plan a snowboard trip to Switzerland :-)"
"Yo Rodrigo Thank you very much for your hospitality and showing us around the island during this 3 weeks stay.Floripa has awesome waves ,girls and parties! I can truly recomend this place!"
"Thank you for the great time Rodrigo. We had 3 weeks of awesome surf , party & barbecue. Floripa rocks!!"
"I really enjoyed the stay, good surf, good company and nice attitudes. I can highly recommend a stay and dont miss out the barbecue!"
"I will never forget the 5 days I spend at BSA. From the reservation to even after the trip, Rodrigo had always the right answer on the rigt time to my questions and wishes. Great service, but not "intrusive" at all, so I could feel totally free to do what I want whenever I want, just rip myself out of my bed have a great brazilian breakfast and jump to Joaquinha beach , or drive around and discover all the beauty and the best spots of the island and around. Believe me, there are some...those 5 days were just not enough !! Looking forward to come again ! Obrigado Rodrigo !!"
"Really enjoyed my stay with Brazil Surfing Adventure. Rodrigo really makes an effort to ensure you have a great stay and is very accommodating. The breakfasts are great if you like it health, fresh fruit smoothies daily. Good advice and guide for all the beaches in and around Florianopolis. If you are after something more real, this is a great option. I had a great time and will definitely be visiting again when I get the chance."
