From West Oz, the men and women of the WSL World Tour set off for the other side of the world and the polar opposite surf destination to Margaret River: Rio de Janeiro. STAB’s Ashton Goggan’s gets a lesson in Brazilian surf culture from Moist Magazine publisher Steven Allain, then heads to the beach just in time for one of the days of the winter at a seriously pumping right-hander. For the pros — we’re looking at you Wade Carmichael — Rio is the place where you’re a bonafide celebrity. The cameras don’t stop popping and the crowds have no limit. You don’t want to miss this exclusive peak behind the curtains of the Oi Rio Pro. Next stop is the J-Bay Open!
