While you’re drinking fresh coconut water and brushing up on your Portuguese, the ASP World Championship Tour competitors are hard at work in Brazil’s warm water waves. There’s no place like Rio de Janeiro for a surf-filled vacation with all the amenities. From the Brazilian bikinis to tropical foods, live music in the streets and hyper action sports culture… Rio has it all. It also features epic left hand point breaks, such as Apoador where the Billabong Rio Pro was held a few years back, and Itaúna in Saquarema hosting the upcoming ASP Prime event.
Smack dab in the middle of the two is Barra da Tijuca, a beach break currently hosting the World’s Top surfers for the Billabong Rio Pro and Women’s Rio Pro, as local favorites Adriano de Souza, Gabriel Medina, Raoni Monteiro and Silvana Lima attract a passionate crowd of surf-crazy fans.
