Gay Surf Brazil ON THE ROAD
23 to 30 October 2023
Praia da Pipa, Brazil
Gay Surf Brazil is the pioneering surf event for the LGBTQIA+ community in South America.
This annual event started in 2013 as a partnership between Brazil Ecojourneys and Gay Surfers, a social media platform created to connect LGBTQIA+ surfers and fight homophobia in surfing.
Since then, we’ve brought together aspiring and seasoned LGBTQIA+ surfers from around the world for a week of “surfing and fun with friends”.
As we celebrate our 10th anniversary, in 2023 we will create a touring event to explore other surf spots in Brazil (and the world!). The first GSB ON THE ROAD will be a partnership with Marolas Nordestinas, a surf trip outfitter from Northeast Brazil.
Our base will be Pousada do Sossego, in Tibau do Sul, Rio Grande do Norte and our activities will take place on the beautiful tropical beaches of Pipa, including Praia do Madeiro with waves that are the dream of beginners and longboarders.
In addition to the venue change, we will be offering, for the first time, an 8 day/7 night surf immersion for all levels, as well as a 5 days/4 nights surf camp for those who just want an introduction to surfing between friends.
We will also be facilitating free surf sessions to celebrate inclusive surfing with the local and regional LGBTQIA+ community.
