Yes, head to Arpoador Beach which is at the upper end of Ipanema. As you near the large rocks, you'll see dozens of surfistas in the water throughout the day .

On the beach will be vendors offering surf board rental and lessons. You can't miss them. They have small tents and surf boards propped up vertically in the sand. It's best to arrange for early to mid morning lessons when the temps are cooler and there are less surfers in the water.
