    It’s a very powerful wave when the big swell comes, with a lot of local bodyboarders. A hard drop and search for the tube, because it’s the only way out.

    When it’s medium or small it offers a good tube, always with a radical drop. Generally the waves in Copacabana comes with a big swell (check out “baixio” and “posto 6”). The best season is in the winter, but it can break everytime a big swell comes. When it’s really big, the outside posto 5 starts working and the waves there go up to 12 feet!! Look for “Baixio” Enjoy the tubes…
