Brazil is a very large, incredibly diverse and vibrant country. It’s just about as large as the United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, and has a population of more than 200 million. You can find all types of landscapes in Brazil, and the population has a history in indigenous people as well as immigrants from Africa, Europe, and Asia, resulting in a very diverse and cosmopolitan culture.
In the north, it is hard to find really good long peeling waves. The best waves are at river mouths and sandy points. There are a few spots but in general, you should not come to the north of Brazil with the expectation of riding tons of perfect waves. That said, if there is some swell in the water, certain spots at river mouths, sandbars and points can produce some fun stuff!
During this surf camp, you will be served breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast and dinner will be served in the hotels and lunches will be served during activities. The lunch consists of sandwiches, fruit, water, cereal bars, and ice. The hotels will give you a welcome drink each time you check-in and provide you with water, beer, isotonic drinks, Red Bull, and caipirinhas. Please kindly tell E-Group in advance if you have other dietary requirements so that they can inform the hotels. You can eat at an upscale restaurant and pay 100 - 150 BRL (30 - 50 USD) or you can eat at a local restaurant and pay around 20 BRL (7 USD).
