Located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Geriba is a fun beach break that offers up some consistent, rippable sections when the swells are around. The waves here require a bit of skill to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. This town is a bit of a ritzy resort town but used to be an enclave for hippies. Friendly vibes and people.
What are the best surf conditions for Geriba?
Gets good between waist-high and overhead. We recommend riding a longboard if smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfers. The surf here is consistent (7/10) and will always have a crew (7/10), especially on weekends. The best winds are from the Northeast. The best swells are from the East, South, and Southeast. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing board shorts or a bikini in the summers when water temperatures rise to 26 degrees. In the winter a springsuit will work when water temperatures drop to 21 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
