 Rio Grande do Sul

Brazil

The shore is whole single beach with no elevations at all for around 600km from Torres to Chuí - Uruguai. No hills will be found, so the beaches are exposed to wind effects and strong rips are common. Spots in Rio Grande do Sul gets messed up easily with any wind that isn't off-shore, again beause there is no hills at all to help protect against wind. Strong Northeast and sometimes South winds are also common. If you want to surf good waves, the tip I would give you is: dawn patrol. On some seasons early in morning you will surf glassy waves, but just before the on-shore or side winds start blowing.

Be careful if you're going to surf on days with strong rips, many surfers have drowned because of fishing nets - this kind of fishing is allowed in Rio Grande do Sul but forbidden anywhere else in Brazil. Surfers are still waiting for a solution to this problem but the government doesn't do anything about it and every winter, when fishermans put their nets in water, more surfers die.

In winter big south swells are common but most times the beach breaks won't hold it and what you get is a stormy and dangerous sea with very strong rips.

Rio Grande lies within the south temperate zone and has a mild, temperate climate, except in the coastal zone where it is subtropical. There are only two well-marked seasons, though the transition periods between them (about two months each) are sometimes described as spring and autumn. The winter months, June to September, are characterized by heavy rains and by cold westerly winds, called minuanos, which sometimes lower the temperature to the freezing point, especially in the mountainous districts. Snow is very rare, but ice frequently forms on inland waters during cold winter nights, only to disappear with the first rays of the sun. In summer, which is nominally a dry season, light rains are common, northerly and easterly winds prevail, and the temperature rises to 35°C (95°F) and higher in the shade. Cases of insolation are not rare.

Rio Grande do Sul state isn't a surfing destination, breaks are not consistent at all but if you're lucky you can surf epic waves. Good luck!

just 3 words to describe it - HOT BLONDE CHICKS!!!

Por Gaucho , 02-06-2010

Most beatiful women on earth and that's all... unless you're a Big Rider! - Oh, and have i mentioned about the beautiful girls? =D

Por Gaucho , 02-06-2010

Most beatiful women on earth and that's all... unless you're a Big Rider! - Home of two out of the three biggest waves in Brazil and many hot gorgeous womens (this is the top-model paradise on earth!), Rio Grande do Sul should be the number one surfing place in the country right? Unfortunately no... apart from that there isn't much left for surfers with one big straight shore line of sand from north to south with a strong messed up and stormy sea (the water colour is dark and brown because of algaes) with cold temperatures during most of the year and freezing during the winter. I must say that there are some good spots in Torres and Atlantida and thousens of hot girls during the summer (specially in a music festival called "Planeta Atlantida") but usually the Gauchos (how are called the inhabitants of Rio Grande do Sul) surfers prefer go to Santa Catarina. For big riders this is a special place though... a world class wave, massive like Teahupoo and in big days up to 24ft, breaks in Ilha dos Lobos (wolves island) around 2km from the shore. Nowadays it's not allowed to surf there but sooner or later they will allow because there is already a study proving that tow-in has no impact in the animals (that sometimes use the island as a resting place). The other big wave spot is very unknow in the rest of the country, it's called Tres Marias and breaks 5km from the shore in Cassino beach.

Errores, opiniones.
