Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
Brazil's north-east coast and the volcanic island of Fernando de Noronha provide some of the country's best surfing. Northerly swells propagate down from the productive North Atlantic winter and light up Brazil's north facing beaches, reefs and points. Fernando de Noronha in particular fires due to its lack of continental shelf. The remainder of the year is dominated by windswell produced by the east/south-east trade winds. Surfing was introduced to the region by an unknown American who in 1928 paddled out at Copacabana Beach and remains extremely popular. Water temperatures remain a warm 25 to 27ºC or 77 to 81ºF year-round.

News Image Surf the Amazon
Imagine surfing the world’s longest wave, up the world’s greatest river, miles from civilisation and deep within the most impressive rainforest on earth. Adventure tour operator Ativa Adventures wants to make that image reality by offering trips for advanced surfers to ride the mighty Pororoca tidal bore on the Amazon River in Brazil. This is an extreme adventure, with real dangers, and miles away from civilisation. Crocodiles, snakes, piranhas, and a wall of white water tearing up everything in its path... But if we get it right, and we have everything in place to ensure that we do, you will experience the most beautiful sight a surfer will EVER get to see. Amazing lefts and rights, barrels that last for minutes, all while surrounded by the stunning, ecologically diverse and completely fascinating Amazon rainforest. Here is an extract from a journal kept by one of our first travellers to the Pororoca:
