Haha! If that is true for Rio then it is also obviously true for holding comps in all those big city crappy waves like they used to do until the surfers revolted and threatened a breakaway tour.

there's a poo outfall pipe in rio, the next beach down. any kind of southerly blows it right through the contest area. being robbed, shot or for the girls even worse are totally plausible outcomes. it's not just the shit waves, but all this other stuff which makes it a legit nightmare.

rio is all about the cheese. medina has 4.5 million followers in insta, and has more sponsorship dollars than a MLB player. it's big business right now to be in brazil.
