Naked surfing: A Brazilian example of body ecology

Abstract : The relationship between the body and nature is an essential chapter in the studies on corporeality and body ecology, one that articulates ethical, social, and educational issues. Using French and Brazilian studies, this paper presents a reflection on the body and naturism, highlighting aspects of body ethics, hygiene, leisure, nudity, and modesty. In the theoretical context of the geography of sport, the authors present naturism and the practice of naked surfing on Tambaba Beach in João Pessoa, Paraiba, Brazil.
