Excited surfers enjoy rare strong swell on waves in Rio de Janeiro

A strong swell – wind energy transferred into the sea, attracted excited surfers to the famous Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday.

“The waves move fast, we name them ‘smile waves,’ its a quite hard wave to surf, very heavy. This is a surprising phenomenon that makes the surfers leave what they are doing and come to surf,” said Plinio, a local resident.

Strong winds created an unusually perfect scenario for riding the waves in the area.
