Rio de Janeiro Surf Forecast map for predicting the best wave and wind conditions across the region. For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea. Move your mouse over the ocean swell symbols or the surf breaks on the coastline to see a more detailed surf forecast including wave period and wind conditions. The forecast updates every 6 hours and most live weather reports update every hour. You can animate the Rio de Janeiro Surf map or show live wind and wave conditions as reported from wavebuoys and local weather stations. Surf breaks shown along the Rio de Janeiro coastline are also listed below.

Eyeball Rio de Janeiro Surf Reports are sent in by surfers living or working at the Rio de Janeiro surf breaks. We don't publish reports from secret spots and reporters send in wave reports from more popular or indicator breaks to help their local surf community. If you are often in Rio de Janeiro and want to get involved we can publish your surf reports anonymously or provide free publicity for your business.

Rio de Janeiro Surf Breaks

Most downtown beach breaks work best from 3 to 8 feet. Expect a big crowd at most of the city breaks when it's on. There is a chance to surf in the dark under floodlights at the eastern end of Ipanema beach (Arpoador) but don't expect to get many waves as the locals are hot and on it full time. There are also two beaches in a rainforest, Prainha and Grumari.
