Home to 213 millions people, Brazil overflows with diversity, beauty, and life - and nowhere is that more true that the country's second largest city, Rio de Janeiro. With its 700 kilometers of dazzling coastline and tropical climate, Brazil is an idyllic playground for surfers. For centuries, indigenious people took to the ocean in hand-built canoes. Surfing reaally took off in the 1960's, as Brazil were drawn to the joy of riding waves and to surfing's culture of freedom and fun. Today, some of the world's best surfers come from Brazil and stood up their very first waves right here.
