The iconic beach game of frescobol perfectly embodies the Rio way of life - cool, active and always friendly. Unlike other bat-and-ball games, frescobol players are partners rather than opponents who, with a non-competitive spirit, work together to keep the ball in the air for as long as possible. The Frescobol Carioca brand embodies the true spirit and style of Rio de Janeiro – it is inspired by the easy-going Cariocas, and the city it calls home, from its unique sidewalk mosaics to its architecture and popular culture.
As an environmentally-conscious company, each Frescobol Carioca skateboard, surfboard and frescobol bat is crafted using pieces of hand-collected driftwood and native hardwood offcuts recycled from Rio's carpentry trade. Individually crafted in Brazil by skilled artisans known as marceneiros, they are handmade in limited runs, each one unique in colour, shape, detail and weight. All are finished with a high-shine bespoke resin for durability, beauty and protection from the sea and the sand.
