Planasurf was founded by me in April/2019 to develop a brazilian invention known for more than 20 years to visitors at the paradisiac Fernando de Noronha island in the northeast of Brazil. It brings a unique and fantastic experience of snorkeling using towing ropes and boards. This invention was hidden there until new sophisticated boards began to appear in other places around the world. I decided to offer it out of Fernando de Noronha island using even more innovating towing experiences such as new boards invented and the Planafloater buoys.
Being a professional water-polo player, diver, surfer and passionate by outdoor and sea sports I decided to offer this experience to delight people in a innovative way to enjoy a boat tour maximizing the sense of freedom with total safety professionalism acquired in 20 yrs of corporate industries.

Pointy Island is THE spot to fly underwater!

Leo was such an amazing host. His experience and knowledge was breath taking and enjoyable. I highly recommend taking this tour with Leo when visiting Rio. This is a one a lifetime experience and only he could’ve made it as fun as it was. Thank you again Leo. We will be back when visiting Rio. Jessica & Clement

This is truly amazing and unique experience! We could not go out in the sea because of the wicked waves, but doing planasurf in the lagoon was amazing. We even were able to do sort of snorkelling - diving close to the bottom, seeing fish etc. Leonardo even has a mask with GoPro mount, so I was able to film the flight. It was very safe, cool and a lot of fun! Acryllic board is easier to operate, but plastic one keeps you floating - we got to try both. We got to know about the life of people around Barra da Tijuca, things to do and see. Leonardo took a real good care of us, was flexible and supernice. Definitely recommended and I'd like to do it again. Thank you Leonardo!
