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.

This is the most popular bodyboarding break in Rio. Can get epic on its day, comparable to Pipeline and Puerto Escondido. As well as the professionals who surf here are the locals from the favela, Rocinha, who rip and are very friendly if you make the effort. Watch out for sewage outfalls after heavy rain.
