    Windsurf is very popular,and so as volleyball or beach volley,courts are set up all along the beaches!
    Surfing can be found in Copa,Ipanema(Arpoador),parts of Barra,Recreio,Prainha and Grumari.
    It's a little more dificult to find,but even rugby,
    cricket,basketball or softball can be played here!
    Equestrian sports have plenty of action at Sociedade Hipica,and horse races have a house at Jockey Club.

    Soccer game at Maracanna

    by XKuger Written Sep 18, 2002

    Soccer in Brazil is religion. One has to definitly watch a Soccer game at the worlds largest soccer stadium Maracanna.
    Specialy a championsship game where the local Flemingos play.

    The air is electric with the fans and the drums and the cheering and the music, food and festivities after each goal.

    I trully re-lived my school days when we stood on the sideslines and screamed out throats sore for out team when we played out arc rivals.

    There was fire works and dancing and wild festivities after the games.

    Equipment: You can buy anything and everyhting that you need right at the stadium. You will need a loat of water as you scream and shout when goals are scored.
