11/04/2014 - 10h28
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.
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
