fun, friendly - i was in rio last week and rented a board for a day. surfed this break 3 times and had some fun. i met a cool guys at the rental shop in arpoador and he was out the next morning. locals were friendly. it was pretty small, about chest to shoulder, maybe it get more intense on a bigger day. there seemed to be a lot of trash in the water in the evening, i think it's because they open the canal that separates leblon from ipanema. so watch out for that. fun lefts.

- Most crowded spot in Rio, but when it's really big (more than 2m).. the crowd stay in the sand !

best left - when the swell is good it's by far the best spot in rio: powerfull waves long walls and barrels. However the crowd is nervous but you can scape from it some days (try very early or just before sun going down).
