No good in summer - In the summer, due to lack of decent regular swells, Ipanema and Leblon are usually just a shorebreak, as no sand is deposited on the outside and thus the sand banks that make this place surfable are non-existant. With the first winter swells, however, the sand banks start forming on the outside and Ipanema and Leblon can have some sweet waves with some nice little barrels...and when u get out of the water, the fauna on the beach is preeeeetty sweet! Enjoy!

awesome - Im from the north shore of Oahu and visited Rio for 2 weeks in August. I stayed in Ipanema and to my amazement the best place to be was across the street from my hotel. for a week straight consistent 10-14'' sets and almost perect shore break. I was told that was an exceptional week and the summer months can be slow with crowded surf.

lets just say i was more interested in the ladies this week however!

not so good - I spent a fortnight hanging around Ipanema and Leblon. The waves never held up particularly well and because it's a bit of a shorey the rides were invariably short. One day with the correct swell (direct southerly?) a good right began to form on the west end of the bay near Leblon. Whenever the waves got even half decent about 5 million kids invaded the water. Millions of people in the water also but less so on bigger days. Arpoador is much better wave but has the crowds also...

good barrels and hot tan tight girls - Surfed here alot, the points are very crowded when its on, but if you
look around you can get a good wave or two. Swimmers
are all over the place when its hot. Speaking of hot, girls are all over the place as well! 7-1 m-f ratio!!!
and they love American surfers! Go now.
