There is a lot of bodyboards in Diabo, it is a quick wave, there are a lots of barrels. To the left side of Diabo there is the “Inferno” that many times is better than Diabo, but in Inferno is a militar area so you can’t sit on the sand.
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.
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.
Really good spot to surf, early in the morning is the best, getting the tide filling up, barrels, so beautiful beach, lots of fun on this spot.
