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.
Pontao do Leblon
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.
