Sandboarding at Joaquina Beach
Joaquina is the most famous beach in Florianópolis, capital of the state of Santa Catarina, south of Brazil. Although its fame comes from surf and the great number of tourists in summer season, it was on its dunes that initiated the practice of sandboard in Brazil.
One of the reasons of it is the vast extension of dunes on this beach, some of them very high. There are a lot of sandboarders from all over Brazil who go there to test their skills on the white sands of the dunes of Joaquina Beach.
