Ipanema Leblon beaches - The beach segment of Arpoador, Ipanema and Leblon east-west has big waves in specific months of the year. To the changes of the seasons the most west part of the beach next to a channel and receives bigger waves at these times. Moreover this high wave energy condition is amplified when the tides and more intensive circulation by coastal currents come to act jointly to the delight of surfers looking for this adventure type on the beaches of the Rio de Janeiro city.

Brazil: should you go?? here is my take... - Brazil it isnt inexpensive anymore, specially in the south(from Rio to RS. Also very very crowded. Im brazilian living abroad and I'd recommend to go to brazil for the experience as a whole (culture, ladies, people, food, parties etc etc,) but if you main goal is to suf then is better to go someplace else...good vibes!

Travel Brazil in maj with a 2 year old, tips? - Hi,
We are a family with a 2 year old boy, in may 2011 we'll go to Brazil for 3 weeks to surf, but don't know where. We want to surf, stay at the beach and it has to at least be one spot where our son is alowed to go into the water. Any ideas:)? Thanks
