GUSTAVO SIMON
FROM SÃO PAULO

According to big-wave rider Maya Gabeira, Búzios (Rio de Janeiro) is ideal for new surfers and beginners.

Skilled surfers must not fear Fernando de Noronha (Pernambuco) waves.

BEGINNER

Búzios (Rio de Janeiro)

Geribá beach is excellent to learn how to surf. In addition to its beauty, the waves break away from the shore, forming "foam" that helps push the board, making it easier for beginners.

BEST TIME from April to November. During summer, the waves are smaller, what can be an advantage for new surfers

FROM US$ 28 one hour lesson

ADVANCED

Fernando de Noronha (Pernambuco)

Apart from the stunning nature, the waves are highly challenging: powerful, constant waves and tubes. Cacimba do Padre beach hosts a stage of the ASP World Championship Tour (WCT). The icons of the island, the Dois Irmãos rocks, are the scenery.

BEST TIME from December to April

FROM US$ 32 one hour lesson
