Canto do Leblon is Rio’s best wave, attracting big wave/tow-in riders when conditions allow, as beefy rights up to 12ft (4m) are sheltered from the W/SW winds at the pointbreak and there are beach peaks as well. The 4km (2.5mi) of Copacabana beach are known worldwide and although the surf is not all that good, boogies have found a square, Shark Island type right reef named Shorey or Expresso Escorpiao.
