Surfing in Copacabana and enjoying the beach

Taman paivan ohjelmaan kuului iltapaiva-SUP Copacabanalla! SUP eli stand up paddle tuntuu olevan erityisen suosittua taalla Brasiliassa, ja syystakin! Maisemat olivat nimittain upeat kyseisen lajin kokeilemiseen ja saimme nahda Copacabanan rantamaiseman ja RIon vuoret uudesta nakokulmasta. Allekirjoittaneelle harrastus ei ollut uusi ja taisinkin olla porukasta ainoa, joka onnistui olemaan kaatumatta session aikana, saan olla ylpea! Kaikista rohkeimmat meloivat aallokon halkija paasivat surffaamaan.

Surfing in Copacabana is a very popular activity here in Rio de Janeiro, but at this time, students tried a different kind of surfing, it’s the stand up paddle surfing. A different surfing where you use a bigger board and also an oar to move on the water, in this sport you don’t need big waves, only water.

Our students from Spain, Italy, Germany, Finland and France tried this sport for the first time, but they started the activity with a nice walk, talking in Portuguese through the ‘Calçadão de Copacabana’ (Copacabana’s side walk), after walking, they went to the beach to first listen to the instructor´s recommendations and finally practicing the sport. In the end, we could realize their happiness and satisfaction with this experience and we are sure they will be back for more!
