Gay Surf Brazil 2020

We brought together aspiring and seasoned surfers from the LGBTQ community from all over the world for a week of surfing

Gay Surf Brazil 2020

This annual event started in 2013 as a partnership between Brazil Ecojourneys and Gay Surfers, a social media platform for LGBTQ surfers that has been connecting the community and helping fight homophobia in surf. Since then, we brought together aspiring and seasoned surfers from the LGBTQ community from all over the world for a week of “surfing and fun amongst friends”. Our surf camp takes place in gorgeous Praia do Rosa, a beach known throughout Brazil for its natural beauty, perfect waves and rustic-chic vibe. Gay Surf Brazil is open for all skill levels, from absolute beginners to more advanced surfers. All members of the community and allies are welcome!
