Recreio dos Bandeirantes, on regular days it becomes an easy ride, with a forgiving take off, and a wall that will hold its size all the way to the inside.
This is a break different from the many others in Rio, since it has few residents around, making localism almost non-existent. Still, on a good day you might find 20 guys out, on a spread of beach of 100 yards.
It’s a paradise spot. It’s a small beach with a virgin forest around. It is the first and unique beach park in Rio. Good parking, bathrooms, stores, snack bars.
Grumari is the best surf beach in rio for surfers who hate crowds.. really cool place at the end of the beach you can easy paddle out.
Best conditions with East swell and South wind. Good spot for medium waves, tends to lose quality when bigger than 5 feet.
