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.
Best Surf Spots
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.
Great option for hang out and get a few waves. But there’s lots of locals. Go early! When it is on is one of the best breaks in Rio!
In a hot weekend the beach is crowded with beautiful people, after the surf and when its flat the night is very good, you can’t get bored there.
