On good days you will be able to ride awesome waves, very long and manoeuvrable. From barrels to airs passing through floaters and snap the wave has several sessions. Just go straight to the lip and just "BEING!!!!" on it...When it gets big (over 6ft) the wave is better at the left corner but in the right one, if you are kamikaze, there are monster barrels behind the rocks. Respect the guys out there!!!!!
There are parking lots all over the beach. It’s easy to park and get to the surf spot you wish. The beach itself is very crowded, but not the surf. Only on holidays, weekends and vacation.
Very good. Good surf and nice chicks. Nice hotels and bars as well.
It’s a nice, fun place, where you can surf during the day and during the night you can have fun at Rock Street (Rua das Pedras).
This is a great place to see lots of wealthy Cariocas enjoying their weekend away from the hustle-bustle of the city. The waves aren't the best around, but they are fun and are close to the best in Buzios.
The surfing is usually good, the bottom is usually nice. What can destroy a good day of surfing is the wind, but that's not often.

Surf in July - I went to Geriba 10 days on July. Nice waves all days, between 3 and 5ft. Sometimes the waves are really fast and not very surfeable, but it's a nice point. When conditions are good the wave is really long and nice, with tubes. The wind onshore or cross shore wind sometimes hits bad the beach. I recommend surfing during the morning.
Locals didnt seem to be heavy, the normal localism, if you respect they respect. No more than 20 people in the water.
Buzios it's a very nice and quiet place, really good food!!
