Barra is in Rio de Janeiro - Barra (Barra da Tijuca) is in Rio de Janeiro.

Barradoor - as Barra was described after a WCT event was held their years back. Mere mortals are gonna struggle to make the barrels. Over 1m it starts to get heavy. Over 2m it's a closeout scenario unless your first name is Kelly.

Photo 2 - Photo 2 looks similar to Drainpipes in LA, California. Closeout for most people.....phat tube for experts
