One problem with surfing in Brazil it is very popular and breaks can get very crowded. That said, it is a huge country and you can always find great waves in empty uncrowded spots. Time your trip with Rio for the Carnival and enjoy the party along with the waves – it is well worth the trip but it needs to be planned in advance.
