    Small boards work best. use a 6´0…anything around that is OK… Any board is good. great tubes break. Really friendly in the middle of the beach…mostly a tourist zone…the thing about ipanema is that the waves change a lot…one day you´ll get the best barrels of your life…the other you´ll regret waking up early…
