It's in Rio Grande de Sul state near Torres breaks around an offshore island Ilha das Lobos. The water isn't that warm down there due to a cold water current coming off the Antarctic.I've seen Penguins in the water a few hundred miles north of this spot.Normally there are seven zillion jetski teams running each other over for the foto op.

little heavy wave. It's interesting because it looks like a deep-water wave just because of the color of the water and the fact that there is no other wave around it. Where was this taken?

eat my gash, i totally agree cept it looks considerably warmer, still i'm going for "i cant decide" and "the smashed face" off whatever is sucking that massive hole in the ocean.

I personally would go for the cheeky left. Nice wave tho makes me appreciate the fact that I am stuck indoors working overtime.

Well sunam, I guess if you are from Ireland you would have trouble paddling into it. A slightly bigger board would suffice. Any other surfer would be paddling into it all day while you get sucked over the falls wave after wave after wave after wave after wave after wave after wave after wave............

Awesome pic, even more awesome wave. Never knew brazil had waves like this! The right is definitely the one, take off behind the peak and get the heaviest backdoor tube:-)

I thought Brazil was all about shitty beach breaks and girls with nice arses. I've changed my outlook.

I would backdoor the left, get a deep pit then cutback and get pitted on the right. Easier done then said.

As a contrast, there a piccie in Fluir a few years a go with about seven zillion tow-in teams all over it.

Who ever said that is a closeout. Its shouldering off on both sides. Close out that wave looks like an A frame to me. I would love to glide all over that swell.

Off shore of Torres in Rio Grande De Sul.They'd hate it being under a spot in Santa Catarina, so just setting it straight on behalf of the Gauchos! I've seen pictures of Alemao de Maresias riding this place really big.
