WCT Rio 2013


Started the World Surf Tour in Rio with the bigger riders around the Globe. Brazil May 8th - 19th, where: Barra da Tijuca and Arpoador.

To the west of Rio is a region with a concentration of high-class hotels and condos and from Barra da Tijuca, a magnificent beach extends along Avenida Semambetiba up to Recreio.

Arpoador is Brazil's surfing birthplace and usually entertains the best surf of the Zona Sul (South Side), easily recognised by its giant rock lookout. On medium to big E swell, lefts can reach 10ft (3m) and the best way to avoid thick crowds is to come surfing at night since the beach is lit. When the proper SW wind blows, though, there's good surfing all the way from Ipanema to Leblon where the seaside strip is even more densely populated.
