Tàpui Surf & Arte
Tàpui means "the place we live in" in Guajajara Tupi language.
Our mission is to mix tradition with future in our Surf & Art.
We are localized in a blessed spot between Massambaba desert beach and Araruama Lake.
It's a perfect place for surfing, kitesurfing, stand up paddle, fishing and all beach and water sports!
Perfect for who is looking for a quiet place to retreat completely involved with the nature in a wild beach.
>>> Note this is a camp, so you'll be sleeping in a tent. I have couple spare tents here, but you can bring your own. <<<
Our camping is localized less than 3 hours from the Capital and 1 Km walking distance from Monte Alto small village (where you can find markets, public phone and internet coffee).
From our place, we have a frequent urban bus to Arraial do Cabo (10 minutes far away) and Cabo Frio (15 minutes far away) where you can find full Urban services. The Rodoviaria Novo Rio, the capital bus station offer frequent coach to Arraial do Cabo and Cabo Frio.
Please read carefully our profile and suggest what you could do best with something you have already good skills and experience. We need to have your help in something you do best. And then you'll learn lots of other things with us and the people around. The idea is sharing knowledge, cultural expressions and work in a respectful and pleasurable way.
We need help to work on the construction to improve our infrastructure to host surfers and travelers. The constructions will be made using Principles of intuitive building, re-use of old materials, permaculture and bio-construction.
We have already build a small community kitchen and two wood made rooms to save our stuff. Now we'll build a traditional indigenous small house to have a comfortable place for resting and meeting at our camp. So, we really need people **WITH EXPERIENCE IN BUILDING**
We need also one easy going person for long term residence (at least one month) for being responsible for hosting and help in coordination and organizing the place.
The internet access is limited. There are some internet cafes in Monte Alto. There is 3G signal of VIVO and TIM.
