Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Rio Pro 2023 is back on the beaches of Rio

The 8th stop on the Men’s Surfing Championship Tour 2023. After finishing off the US stop at the Surf Ranch and the Surf City El Salvador Pro in June the WSL migrates across the globe to South America to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, for the Rio Pro 2023. 

Typically held in average beachbreak conditions that can deliver a punch. The contest is as close to an old ‘80s beach party as you’re going to find on tour today. The Brazilian crowds on the beach swell to hundreds of thousands of peoples, all frothing to take in the action. With world titles going to Gabriel Medina and Adriano De Souza and Italo Ferreira the country has fallen in love with surfing. In fact it’s the second largest sport in Brazil after soccer. If you’re thinking of traveling there to take in the contest, get ready for a heady dose of South American beach culture.

Hang at the world-famous Copacabana Beach or Ipanema to soak in the culture, or make the trek to the top of a nearby mountain to visit the 100-foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue and get a crazy panoramic view of the area. If you’re feeling frisky, there’s no shortage of nightlife in Rio, but remember to keep your wits about you as petty crime is common.

Things To Do In Rio

Rio De Janeiro is an incredible multi cultural city. Head to the world famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Explore the city’s street art and colonial treasures during the day, take the gondola up to Sugarloaf mountain for the sunset and unwind with a capriosca and party the night away.

Don’t miss the iconic Christ Redeemer Statue on top of Corcovado Mountain for spectacular views over the city. Avoid the taxi’s and bus tours as they are expensive and your’ll get stuck in traffic,  instead take public transport and walk through Tijuca national park up to the summit.
