Surfing in Rio
In Zona Sul, the southern part of Rio and the place you’ll want to hang, there are some great waves that are a walk or a short bike ride away. There are numerous options but my favorite spot was Leblon - the swell seemed to be a bit bigger there and the crowds are much friendlier. It has the best vibe in Rio. Even when it’s small you can catch some decent waves here.
