Pontao is a dangerous wave, with lots of power. There is a killer shore-break. It’s a really good spot for big waves, and it has some really fun waves when its small.
Excellent tube riding spot. The hollowest and most barreling wave in Rio city. Surfing this place in a sunny day is incredible, the background is surreal.
Joatinga is a spot that even no waves(flat), there will be some waves, always!! On week-ends you can see the beautiful brazilian womens.
