The Cariocas (locals of Rio de Janeiro), created a sport in which the only goal is to keep the ball on top, without use the hands, and never let it drop. Whatever it takes. And they take it serious... The "altinha" usually it is played in the sand, but these guys prefer to make a little harder and play in the water!
Location: Ipanema beach, Rio de Janeiro, Rio, Brasil
