Watch: Brazilian Slab Gargles And Spits!
This wave breaks over an underwater mountain range over 3 km off the coast.
Ever wonder how Brazilians got so comfortable in heavy surf?
As proven by the last two Oi Rio Pros, Brazil is more than a string of messy beach breaks. In fact, the western Atlantic provides hollow waves on a semi-regular basis. And somewhat ironically, the swell above, at a wave called Avalanche (some 500 km north of Rio), coincided with what should have been the opening day of the 2020 CT event.
Makes you wonder what Barrinha would have looked like…
Anyway, this joint Avalanche was discovered years ago by the local NXF bodyboard crew. The wave breaks over an underwater mountain chain, which is 12 feet deep at its shallowest point and more than three kilometers offshore.
Last week’s swell brought surfers from all over Brazil, including Lucas Medeiros, Ian Vaz, Caio Vaz, Ziul Andueza, and Gabriel Sampaio, supported by the local crew NXF Bodyboard (@nxfbodyboard).
