Surfing Brazil. General Guidelines?

Late August to late October- North or South?

Seeking: rash guard only, beginner to intermediate access, prefer point breaks to beach breaks, don't mind a few people- just not huge crowds, small to medium size town/ city, possible volunteer options.

Suggestions or pointers? General guidelines will do.

If you want warm water and consistent surf... Check out the surf spots in Rio de Janeiro...

There is a surf camp that can accomodate you....
Check on the net riosurfnstay ... I have staied with them and their are pretty cool people... a Kiwi girl and a Brazialian manage the place... their food is really good as well

In Rio you can get pretty good waves and some wild parties if you want...

Gte in touch if you need more advise...

Thanks for the info. I have since cancelled the idea of volunteering and am wondering only about travel between Sao Paulo and Salvador. Surfing? Safety for a solo? I'd like to balance out the party and chill aspects, but def want in on both. I'm expecting this to be a challenge of a mission, but also don't want to be so stressed about travelling solo that it's no fun. Thoughts?

When you find info please let me know whats up cause I'm planning a solo around the world Sept-2008-April 2009.  Have friends in sao paolo area but am also freaked about the by oneself thing.
Keep in-touch

I would got to a small surf town like Pipa or Itacare (where I live). Much safer than the cities, small town friendly vibe easy to meet people if your on your own etc.
Surfing is very popular in Brasil though, so crowds at weekends and national holidays are normal.

isn't it usually pretty flat in SC anyways in the summer? used to live in SF...would come down once a week or so...how was this past winter?

Itacare is a definite interest. Debating Sao paulo to Salvador and back...or Rio to Florianopolis range. Thoughts? Heard Dengue is in full effect around Rio and areas south along the coast.

Also, buses? Land at G. International Airport in SP and thinking of hopping a bus directly to Rio or Salvador, if possible. Then making a slow desent back to Sao Paulo. What should I expect pay for fare from SP to Salv. direct? For that ride, I'm thinking at least a decent bus accomodation. How long to Salvador?

Hey Nick,

I'm planning on going to Ithacare in November. Are there waves? I'm not looking for anything huge, just fun chest to head high.
