In the right corner some "triangles" (triangulos) are formed in the waves, it's perfect for bodyboarding tubes.
Joatinga is a spot that even no waves(flat), there will be some waves, always!!
On week-ends you can see the beautiful brazilian womens. Don't go there when the swell is over 8ft because it becomes horrible!
and remember, RESPECT THE LOCALS!!!!
Some localism, fun, sunny.
The waves are good tubes, perfect for bodyboarders!
It's a nice place. If you want, your grandmother can go with you.
One of the best waves of rio. Perfect for surfers and bodyboarder... Perfect barrels on the right side, funny waves in the midle, and huge lefts on the left side.
Good wave...Nice barrels and very good to make air tricks.
