about arpoador beach

Considered by most locals as the birthplace for surfing in Brazil, today this beach is famed for a large footfall from locals and tourists alike to pursue surfing not just as a sport but as an exciting lifestyle choice and habit. The beach which lies between Ipanema and Copacabana Beach, is a unique one owing to several rock cuts jutting out of the range of cliffs that Arpoador Beach stands lined up with. These sharp outcroppings, which are at least about 7 to 10 feet tall, make room for good take off points, especially when the tides are running slow. Ferocious tide conditions, make up for the ideal situation wherein the more hardcore in the sport can have their share of fun.
