COPACABANA, RIO DE JANEIRO, BRASIL-  After providing less-than-stellar surf conditions for last month's Rio Bodyboarding International event, Posto 5 delivered the goods for the Rio Matte Leao Bodyboard Carioca Tour's 2012 Posto 5 Pro/Am, the third event of the tour.  With a solid 4-6ft. swell and clean barrelling conditions, some of Brasil's best bodyboarders put on an incredible show.

  In the Mens Pro division, it was Posto 5 local Francirley Ferreira taking the win.  With this win, Francirley has moved up into 2nd place in the rankings with two events left on the 2012 Carioca tour schedule.  Here are the current Mens Pro standings after three events:
