What you'll do
Rio de Janeiro is a concrete paradise regarding skateparks, spread throughout the city! I’ve prepared weekday and weekend itineraries with some of the best skateparks in Barra da Tijuca and Recreio dos Bandeirantes: Duó, one of the most complete skateparks in the country, Pontal do Recreio, on the seafront, 399, a bar also on Recreio, with a pool style bowl and Spotlab, Bob Burnquist’s park, on Gigoia Island, where we will get by boat ride.
I am one of the oldest skateboarders in Brazil, I’ve been always known as the "Skate Encyclopedia" ... before Google =) Pioneer of Skateboarding on Brazilian TV and Skateboarding Video in Brazil, with 6 titles released in VHS and 1 in DVD, currently I maintain the channel Chave Mestra Videos, focused on Skateboardinng of the 20th Century. I’ve started attending Skateparks in 1977 at the very 1st Latin American Skatepark in Nova Iguaçu. Everything changed for me when I discovered skateboarding in transitions! I founded Cesinha Chaves Skateboard Tours to help who enjoy this lifestyle and would like to know more about the cariocas’ skateparks, take photos and mainlly, to have memorable sessions in Rio de Janeiro's skateparks.

I have a car that I use to take the guests to the skateparks. We'll take a boat to Spotlab on Gigóia Island. The cost of car…

Where you'll be
We met at Barra Metro, Final station, Exit Lagoa. We will drive to our destinations, whether it is Praça Duó in front of Barra da Tijuca beach, or Recreio dos Bandeirantes to Pista do Pontal, in front of the beach, or to 399. The weekend tour has one more option, visiting Spotlab (open only on weekends), which is located on Ilha da Gigóia, which besides a great park, also has a bar and excellent cuisine for a good price!
Things to keep in mind
Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 4 guests aged 12 and up can attend.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
It is important that the guests already have some experience in skateboarding, or already practice the sport. I will provide all the assistance needed, but knowing how to skateboard a minimum is necessary to enjoy the experience.
