Event Guide

The World Surf League has announced, last year, the shift of the primary venue for the 2017 Rio Pro from Postinho Beach at Rio, to Saquarema.
Many Cariocas consider Saquarema to have the most consistent, quality waves in Brazil, with Itaúna at the heart of it all.

Saquarema has hosted a number of QS events over the years, but this will be the second time the ‘CT will run there since 2002.

The winner of the men’s 2016 Oi Rio Pro was John John Florence while Tyler Wright won the women’s competition!
