It´s very easy to arrive in CCB's spot, you can do it by car(more or less 30 kilometers from the downtown), or you can take the bus (public transport)or even take a special bus in Rio that pass in all the surf spots in the city this bus called SURFbus and cost U$1,50. If you rent a car dont worry its very easy to arrive in the spot you see signposts indicating all the spots in the principals access avenues but the advantage going by car is that you can parking the car and have intant access but if you prefer go by public transportation you must do a good walk (1-2 kilometers). Have a nice waves, enjoy the the beauty and the nature and respect the locals.

Macumba's beach is one of the better beach break in Rio. The beach is very long you can find three diferents breaks with three differents waves. The Macumba left corner you can surfing in a longboard, beach is more deeper making fun waves. In CCB's spot you can find a fast and hollow wave very consistent if you have luck you can have the better day sufing in your life. Another break in macumba is called "secret" by the locals bodyboards. Its a new sandy-bar formed after a pier-rock construction. The waves in this local are very very hollow make powerful barrels, havy and powerful breaks.All long the extension of Macumba the botton is formed by sand.

- lots of fun but lots of crowd. try to avoid weekends if you can. there are a lot of longboarders that cant surf, and that´s a serious risk!
